The Future of Text Book: A 2020 Vision - join the launch event, 20 November 2020

Published: 18 November 2020
The Future of Text

The Future of Text, is the largest survey of the future(s) of text ever undertaken. It is a collection of dreams for how we want text to evolve as well as how we understand our current textual infrastructures, how we view the history of writing, and much more. The aim is to make it inspire a powerfully rich future of text in a multitude of ways today and to still have value in a thousand years and beyond. It should serve as a record for how we saw the medium of text and how it relates to our world, our problems and each other in the early twenty first century.

To celebrate the launch of this book, there will be an online and open event on Friday 20 November 2020 at 5pm UK time. Attendees will need an invitation link to take part however, so please email if you would like to come:
