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.
