Potent quotes from writing technology by christina haas
Potent Quotes From Writing Technology by Christina Haas

“Literary scholars need to do more than merely observe as the discourses of our culture ‘make’ technology and as that technology, in turn, remakes discourse.”


Technology studies
Technology Studies?

  • “Teasing out when and how technology changes writing, when it does not, and the implications of both is one of the challenges of an enterprise I call Technology Studies: a concerted, focused attempt to examine technologies of writing-historically, theoretically, empirically, and practically.”


Focus
Focus

  • “Another tenet of the interdisciplinary enterprise of Technology Studies would be a continual focusing and refocusing on the technology, a looking at, rather than through technology.”

  • “Technology itself-rather than merely technology’s consequences-must become an object of inquiry.”


Critical eye
Critical Eye

  • “The naturalness of a well-designed computer interface may suggest an inevitability that masks the human decisions that have created the technological artifact.”

  • “Careful studies of technology development can get behind the mask of inevitability.”


Christina haas
Goal

  • “Ultimately, my goal in advocating that we historicize computer technology more completely and more complexly is to counter the dangerous assumption that technology is transparent--that it is not theoretical and that it is not laden with value.”


Annotated bibliography
Annotated Bibliography

  • Writing Technology: Studies in the Materiality of Literacy by Christina Haas

  • Provides an excellent, concise, overview of language theory and its interaction with issues of technology and literacy. Contains several chapters devoted to practice and studies. Asserts the importance of “historicizing” technology as a way of maintaining a critical perspective on its development and place in our lives.


Annotated bibliography continued
Annotated Bibliography Continued

“’People do what they know’: Some Accounts of Participation in Project UNLOC.” Christina Haas and Kathryn Weiss. Works and Days 17/19 (1999-2000): 511-535.

  • An interesting observation of the conference UNLOC (Understanding Narratives, Literacy and Ourselves in Cyberspace). Haas critically responds to posts generated during the on-line conferencing. Her essay becomes more significant when it is looked at with the other articles in the journal.
