The Fate of Reading, Thinking, and Learning in an Electronic Age

by McCullough, Heather A

Abstract (Summary)
This project explores ideas about reading, thinking, and learning in the context of technological developments in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. With the increasing prevalence of electronic resources available for sharing and organizing information and for communicating, scholars have begun considering the impact produced by these new technologies on how humans think and how they perceive and conceptualize information. In particular, the paper addresses the challenge posed by new forms of textual production to traditional literary study and criticism.
