It covers all periods from the second millennium BC to the late twentieth-century, a wide range of geographies, and deploys a challenging body of theoretical and methodological approaches to the topic of scribal cultures and practices.\"--David Vincent, Emeritus Professor of Social History, The Open University, UK This book investigates the history of writing as a cultural practice in a variety of contexts and periods. It analyses the rituals and practices determining intimate or \'ordinary\' writing as well as bureaucratic and religious writing. From the inscribed images of \'pre-literate\' societies, to the democratization of writing in the modern era, access to writing technology and its public and private uses are examined. In ten studies, presented by leading historians of scribal culture from seven countries, the book investigates the uses of writing in non-alphabetical as well as alphabetical script, in societies ranging from Native America and ancient Korea to modern Europe. The authors emphasise the material characteristics of writing, and in so doing they pose questions about the definition of writing itself. Drawing on expertise in various disciplines, they give an up-to-date account of the current state of knowledge in a field at the forefront of \'Book History\'.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"A World Inscribed : Introduction \/ Martyn Lyons and Rita Marquilhas -- The Babylonian Scribes and Their Libraries \/ Francis Joann\u00E8s -- Writings in the Korean Han\'g\u016Dl Script by and for the Women of Chos\u014Fn Korea (1392-1910) \/ SeoKyung Han -- Paper World : The Materiality of Loss in the Pre-Modern Age \/ John Gagn\u00E9 -- Writings on the Streets : Ephemeral Texts and Public Space in the Early Modern Hispanic World \/ Antonio Castillo G\u00F3mez -- Writing One\'s Life : The French School of the Anthropology of Writing \/ Nicolas Adell -- Calendar, Chronicle and Songs of Sorrows : Generic Sources of Life Writing in Nineteenth-Century Finland \/ Anna Kuismin -- Reading the \'Cheyenne Letter\' : Towards a Typology of Inscription beyond the Alphabet \/ Germaine Warkentin -- The Scribal Culture of Children : A Fragmentary History \/ Ver\u00F3nica Sierra Blas -- Policing Writing in the City, 1852-1945 : The Invention of Scriptural Delinquency \/ Philippe Arti\u00E8res -- QWERTYUIOP : How the Typewriter Influenced Writing Practices \/ Martyn Lyons -- The Future of the History of Writing \/ Martyn Lyons.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4048457589#Person\/lyons_martyn<\/a>> ; # Martyn Lyons<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4048457589#Person\/marquilhas_rita<\/a>> ; # Rita Marquilhas<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4048457589<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4048457589#Series\/new_directions_in_book_history<\/a>> ; # New directions in book history.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4048457589#CreativeWork\/approaches_to_the_history_of_written_culture_a_world_inscribed<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Approaches to the history of written culture : a world inscribed<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1000451579<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/nls.ldls.org.uk\/welcome.html?ark:\/81055\/vdc_100062856528.0x000001<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/link.springer.com\/book\/10.1007%2F978-3-319-54135-8<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/rave.ohiolink.edu\/ebooks\/ebc\/9783319541365<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.1007\/978-3-319-54136-5<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.vlebooks.com\/vleweb\/product\/openreader?id=none&isbn=9783319541365<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=4939921<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1571624<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/link.springer.com\/book\/10.1007%2F978-3-319-54136-5<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/dx.doi.org\/10.1007\/978-3-319-54136-5<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9783319541365<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1000451579<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
