TODAY! Author Anne Trubek on The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting (Sept. 26)

In The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting, Anne Trubek describes the cultural impact of handwriting, from the advent of Sumerian clay tablets to current discussions about writing and typing. By describing the various innovations behind the written and printed word, Trubek argues that a decline in handwritten communication indicates the beginning of yet another phase in the evolution of communication.
