through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to
digital social networks”

So many questions about literacy...
There’s more to literacy than reading
Chauvet Horses
approx 32,000 years old Karaja Indians, Brazil, 2005
There’s more to literacy than writing
Socrates
c. 370 BC
Writing is an aid “not to
memory, but to
reminiscence” providing
“not truth, but only the
semblance of truth.”
Computer gamers
c. 2005

Many theories
“Part of the confusion
about media convergence
stems from the fact that
when people talk about it,
they’re actually describing
at least five processes”
(Henry Jenkins, 2001)
- technological
- economic
- social or organic
- cultural
- global
WWW.TRANSLITERACY.COM
Transliteracy is a unifying concept
• Its focus is on interpretation via practice and
production
• Its interest in lived experience, history,
context and culture
• Convergent
• Transdisciplinary
• Holistic
• Networked

Amplified Leicester 2009-10
• MODE: Fortnightly f2f
meetings for 6 months
supported by online.
Personal socme training.
• PLUSES: Strong personal
bonds; NVC
opportunities; high
creativity & innovation;
lasting community
identity

made it easy for some to
drop out of online.
http://youtu.be/bh0xYkuCLL8
DMU Transdisciplinary Common
Room 2012-3
• MODE: Meeting rooms &
kitchen for socialising &
study. Card entry. Wireless.
Regular meetings + drop-in.
Blog and email list.
• PLUSES: Attractive to
colleagues wanting to meet
others from different
faculties; very relaxed &
non-corporate.
• NEGATIVES : Requires lot of
management; needs group
ownership; expensive.
A transliterate space
• Online , offline or both
• Flexible, social, personal
• Access to tools, both
digital & analogue
• Encourages & supports
collaboration, skills
exchange
• Welcomes diverse ideas,
disciplines & people
• The space is attractive &
comfortable
• Has a curator/manager

_dish.jpg
Challenges of a transliterate space
• FLEXIBILITY can be difficult
• COMPLEXITY: participants
need to understand the
ethos
• RESISTANCE: participants
should want to be there
• ANXIETY: don’t worry if you
don’t have all the skills –
cooperation is key
• FUNDERS may not get what
you are trying to create, but
hopefully they will
understand the results

Planning your transliterate space
• Should it be online, offline,
or both?
• Digital tools
• Analogue tools
• Indoors/outdoors
• Collaboration/solo spaces
• Private/public
• Which disciplines?
• Distinctive & different
because you’re inviting
people to behave differently
• Aware of the future...

Challenges of a transliterate space • FLEXIBILITY can be difficult • COMPLEXITY: participants need to understand the ethos • RESISTANCE: participants should want to be there • ANXIETY: don’t worry if you don’t have all the skills – cooperation is key • FUNDERS may not get what you are trying to create, but hopefully they will understand the results http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4019/460292 7398_c376a356a0_z.jpg
  • 31. Planning your transliterate space • Should it be online, offline, or both? • Digital tools • Analogue tools • Indoors/outdoors • Collaboration/solo spaces • Private/public • Which disciplines? • Distinctive & different because you’re inviting people to behave differently • Aware of the future...
