1-10-12: Word Processing in Literature

January 10, 2012 at 8:34 am Leave a comment

For hundreds of years, writers used pen and ink to put their thoughts to paper.By the late 1800s, they had a new tool: the typewriter, a tool that was replaced by the end of the last century by the word processor.

That technological development has resulted in a sea change in how writing is done and University of Maryland Professor Matthew G. Kirschenbaum is chronicling it in an upcoming book on “The Literary History of Word Processing.” He joins Nathan for a preview of the book.
