Upcoming Virtual Event:
April 8th at 7 pm
How has handwriting changed since scribes first etched cuneiform tablets in ancient Sumeria? Is it okay that some American elementary schools no longer teach cursive? This presentation will discuss the various meanings we have ascribed to making marks upon surfaces since writing was invented, and how the most recent revolution in writing technology–the computer–is changing those meanings yet again.
