The modern secondary orality is about engaging with text, remixing, co-creating mashups, sharing text across time and space synchronously and asynchronously, making thinking not just readable but visible, fusing text into transmedia events.  Is this a return to a pre-industrialized polychronic communicative form, or a new era of literacy, a post-Gutenberg parenthesis?  We talk to Tracy Clark, Silvia Tolisano, Lee Ann Tysseling, Thomas Pettitt, Amy Burvall, and have performance guests, Frank Reichlin, and CNG students.
