LRDG Seminar: Dyslexia, digitality and deconstruction

Date: 10 March 2009 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

Charlie Gere, Institute for Cultural Research, Lancaster University

A couple of years ago my wife and I had our suspicions confirmed when our daughter was diagnosed as dyslexic. As with many children so diagnosed her verbal reasoning was far, far in advance of her reading and writing levels, which were in turn, far behind those of many of her age group. Though concerned for her I also found the question of dyslexia extremely interesting, especially in relation to some other areas of interest of mine, in particularly derridean deconstruction and the transformations being brought about in how we read and write in a digital age.

In this talk I discuss some of the connections between these topics.
