Transcriptions is a curricular development and research project in the UC Santa Barbara English department started with a NEH Teaching with Technology grant in 1998. Project faculty and graduate students create courses and research materials related to:
- The social, political, economic, and cultural contexts that now make “information” so powerful;
- The equivalent contexts that have always made literature itself an “information technology,” including the cultures of orality, manuscript, print, etc.
Transcriptions also includes an undergraduate curricular track for English majors: the Literature and Culture of Information Specialization (http://transcriptions.english.ucsb.edu/curriculum/lci/).
