Beyond Literacy

  • ACRL and the Ontario Library Association have announced the online publication of Beyond Literacy by Michael Ridley of the University of Guelph. Beyond Literacy is an interactive serialized online thought experiment exploring the demise of literacy and the rise of other capabilities, capacities or tools that will effectively and advantageously displace reading and writing. The work is freely available for reading, comment and discussion on the project website. Beyond Literacy is a thought experiment about the demise of literacy and the rise of other capabilities, capacities or tools that will effectively and advantageously displace reading and writing. While the prospect of the end of literacy is disturbing for many, it will not be a decline into some new Dark Age but rather the beginning of an era of advanced human capability and connection.
