In an effort to think about how digital mediums influence a person’s relationship with written and spoken word, the HBW will bring its followers five days of quotes from a single author, every week on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. The new initiative—also known as “Digital Perspective”—explores how users interpret the meaning of a concise quote that is a part of a larger conversation or discussion.
What historical, social, and political factors influence how a person reads a quote on the web? How does the meaning of a quote change depending on how it is presented? How do quotes influence a person’s impressions of an author? Questions of these sorts have encouraged us to start our new project! Please, join our experiment by commenting on the daily round of quotes and offering your own “Digital Perspective!”
