Murray on the Future of the Written Word

External News Details

"We have exhausted our ability to say all we know about the world through print alone," said Janet Murray, Professor in the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture, "Yet current e-books are lame and frustrating because they don't incorporate colour, video, or any other digital possibilities. New media of representation will force us to think radically and to create new genres."

Murray's remarks came from a panel on the future of reading and writing held at "The Book Tomorrow: The Future of the Written Word," part of the FOCUS 2011 forum held in Lombardy, Italy and organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation and the Italian government.
