Eric McLuhan just let us know that two talks he gave on the subject of The Future of Literacy are now available online. So last night James and I plugged the laptop into the telly, sat back and immersed ourselves in the McLuhan message. Terrific. If you want to learn to understand what’s going on – with everything, start here. Here’s the link for both talks, The Future of Literacy (November 21, 2007) and Dream of a Common Alphabet, November 28, 2007.
Just want a taste? click on the image to see/hear part 1.
These lectures were given as part of Bruce Powe’s McLuhan Initiative for the Study of Literacies.
