Announcement: Transliteracies Bibliographies

The following are working bibliographies created to support various Transliteracies activities.

Announcement: Social Computing Working Group » Research Reports

The Social Computing Working Group focuses on research in the fields of social computing methods, information credibility, and collective action. The following reports and papers reflect these research interests.

Announcement: History of Reading Working Group » Research Reports

The History of Reading Working Group focuses on research in the fields of the history of the book and other “interfaces,” the evolution of individual and collective reading practices, and the relation of old to new media forms. The following reports and papers reflect these research interests.

Announcement: Text Analysis Tools

Text and content analysis tools.

Announcement: New Reading Interfaces Working Group » Research Reports

The New Reading Interfaces Working Group focuses on reading in the context of networked and multimedia communication environments. Some of our topics include text visualizations, alternative interfaces, immersive or VR environments for text. The following reports and papers reflect these research interests.

Announcement: Historical Multimedia

Announcement: Research Paper » Table of Contents

Articles, essays, reviews of literature, talks, and white papers generated by the Transliteracies project.

Announcement: Online Literacy Skills Bibliography

Suggested scholarly books and articles related to research into online reading. This bibliography was created by Monica Bulger, and will be expanded as the Transliteracies project continues. See also the History of Reading group’s bibliography and the Social Computing group’s bibliography. Objects for Study in the project’s Research Clearinghouse contains annotated citations of a wider range of related materials (including web, hardware, software, historical, and artistic resources as well as selected items from this bibliography).

A master list of this bibliography, alphabetized by author, is also available in .pdf and .doc formats.

Announcement: Alternative Interfaces

Alternative hardware or software paradigms of the interfaces—e.g., haptic, augmented, immersive, non-standard physical or screen navigation systems, etc. (Objects in this category may also be included in other categories related to individual hardware or software topics.)

Announcement: Research Reports (By Author)

Research reports focus on high-priority items in Objects for Study Reports are written in a standard format designed both to synopsize the topic and to offer a preliminary evaluation of the opportunities it suggests for Transliteracies’s goal of improving online reading.

Announcement: Research Reports (Alphabetically)

Research reports focus on high-priority items in “Objects for Study.” Reports are written in a standard format designed both to synopsize the topic and to offer a preliminary evaluation of the opportunities it suggests for Transliteracies’s goal of improving online reading.

Announcement: Glossary

The Glossary provides definitions of words that may be of interest to Transliteracies Project members, as well as to the general reading public.

Announcement: Research Produced in Courses

Supplemental research focuses on items produced in conjunction with Transliteracies Project-sponsored courses. While not directly bearing upon specific objects for study or research reports, these projects are sufficiently related to the project to warrant inclusion in the site. Supplemental research entries are ordered on this page by date of original posting, with the most recent entries at the top.

Announcement: Online Knowledge Bases

“Knowledge Base” here to refers to sites or projects which have employed some kind of innovation or collaborative approach to knowledge-shaping on the Internet.

Announcement: Open Tagging Systems

Online text, multimedia, or social networking resources that allow users to annotate (“tag”) content with metadata (e.g.,category designations) in an open, flexible scheme for sharing with others.

Announcement: Tools for Analyzing Online Social Networks

Announcement: Social Networking Systems

(See also Open Tagging Systems, which allow for a minimal level of community formation around shared metadata tags designating common categories of interest.)

Announcement: Gallery

“The Gallery” exhibits images, Flash animations, audio/video files, Powerpoint files, and other multimedia presentations collected or created by the Transliteracies Project to support of its research. A primary goal of the Gallery is to present crucial ideas or examples in the research areas explored by particular Transliteracies working groups so that they can be quickly grasped by researchers in other working groups with different expertise. For example, the History of Reading working group is currently at work on a visual exhibit of the history of the book. Similarly, the Online Reading & Social Groups working group may produce an exhibit of some of the main variants of social networking.

Announcement: Hardware Innovations (Historical)

Technological innovations from the age of manuscripts through modern codex books and document forms.

Announcement: Art Installations

Where appropriate and useful, some art works related to the issues of the Transliteracies Project are also placed in other categories of “Objects for Study.” For example, a work might contribute equally to art and to research in text visualization or data mining. But cross-categorization is the exception rather than rule. Art works that seem intended primarily for an art context or are difficult to generalize are not placed in multiple categories. (Categories would otherwise become less useful, since contemporary art works may have a simultaneously mimetic, parodic, subversive, and/or transformative character that allows them in principle to be placed alongside any and all other objects for study.)

Announcement: Historical Encoding & Formatting Inventions

Announcement: Related Blogs

Announcement: Text and Multimedia

Announcement: Collective Reading

Collective / group reading practices, both online and historical, distributed and on location (as in a classroom).

Announcement: Text for Cell Phones & Small Wireless Devices

Announcement: Immersive Text Environments

Immersive, virtual-reality, or augmented-reality display environments for text, including both large-scale and “book”-scale devices.

Announcement: Search & Data Mining Innovations

Search and data mining technology innovations with implications for the future of online reading.

Announcement: Online Text Archives

Recent developments in large-scale online text archiving.

Announcement: Software/Coding Innovations

Included in this category of Objects for Study are foundational programming or coding innovations (as opposed to particular programs) that bear thinking about for their possible impact on online reading practices. (See also Text Encoding (Markup) | Historical Encoding & Formatting Inventions)

Announcement: Objects for Study » Table of Contents

“Objects for Study is a collection point for innovations (contemporary and historical) of interest to Transliteracies. Definition of “object”: any material, concrete, or discrete entity (e.g., device, program, protocol, article, book, project, art work) that points toward a generalizable paradigm suggesting research trends. Categories: Objects are gathered in one or more categories (e.g., “Hardware Innovations”). Category groups: Categories are stacked (e.g., “1. Hardware”) according to which focus (hardware, software, display, psychology, society, history, etc.) tends to dominate research associated with that topic (fuller explanation).
       See also Bibliography of books and articles related to research into online reading.

Transliteracies creates research reports on selected objects for study.
