Scripts, Grooves, and Writing Machines: Representing Technology in the Edison Era

by

This is a study of machines for writing and reading at the end of the 19th century in America. Its aim is to explore writing and reading as culturally contingent experiences, and at the same time to broaden our view of the relationship between technology and textuality. At the book's heart is the proposition that technologies of inscription are materialized theories of language.
