Nigel Hall: Erasable writing technologies: a material history

Date: 4 May 2010 Time: 1.00 - 2.00 pm

Venue: Institute for Advanced Studies Meeting Room 1

However, a vast amount has been designed out of existence by being created using erasable writing technologies. These have been an intrinsic partners of other writing technologies for thousands of years and clearly have been a very significant elements in people's writing experiences. This session will present a brief look at the major (and some of the minor) erasable writing technologies that have accompanied human activity across five millennia.
