Product Description

Review

Doueihi's argument [is] revelatory and important. He presents the diversity of digital practices and the importance of digital literacy in an increasingly complex textual environment. Moving beyond basic functional literacy, Doueihi asks how digitization configures a meta-literacy, "of what it means to be literate.'" -- Tara Brabazon Times Higher Education 20110616 By showing how modes of communication and human relationships have changed since its rise, [Doueihi] makes a persuasive case that digital culture has broken free from print culture, which extends from the Gutenberg Bible of the 1450s to the present. Instant response, brevity, minimal spelling and grammar, novel syntax and different modes of composition have created new forms of literacy...Written in the "old" discursive format, Digital Cultures includes much to think about. The pace of change is fast, but Doueihi's insight is fresh. -- George Rousseau Nature 20110505
