WSC 121 From Pictograph to Pixels: The Impact of Technologies on Literacies (AA)

Notes: ___________________ ___________________ ___________________

Cave paintings tell us that humans have been communicating, using available technology, for over 31,000 years. Such pictographic efforts can be found in Europe from Spain to the Ural Mountains, in South Africa and Southeast Asia, in South America, in Baja Mexico, and in the American Southwest. Were they part of a religious ceremony? intended to entertain or to teach? Were they done by random members of a group or were there designated "authors"? In this course, we will explore some of the more significant efforts and the questions and problems engendered by the basic human drive to communicate.
