Reading, Writing, and Non-Thinking "Work" on Social Media | HASTAC

Reading, Writing, and Non-Thinking "Work" on Social Media | HASTAC | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

In an essay titled "Writing Over Reading: New Directions in Mass Literacy" Deborah Brandt describes the tension between reading and writing. Historically, Brandt writes, reading was seen as more valuable, and also filled with more "reverence" than writing. Writing was seen as "self-sponsored" action that might be done in the wake of a dramatic period-- divorce, falling in love, losing someone, or the need to write one's memoir. Yet, now we are at a great moment when people are reading for the purpose of writing: "from the position of the writer, with hands on the screen."
