Summary

Talk, Text and Technology is an ethnography of language, learning and literacy in remote Indigenous Australia. This study traces one Indigenous group from the introduction of alphabetic literacy in the 1930s to the recent arrival of digital literacies and new media. This innovative work examines changing social, cultural and linguistic practices across the generations and addresses the implications for language and literacy socialisation.

Author Biography
