Event description

Description

The MIT Press Bookstore presents Thomas S. Mullaney, Associate Professor of History at Stanford University, discussing his book The Chinese Typewriter on Wednesday, October 4, at 6:00 pm at the Bookstore. This event includes a book signing. Books will be on sale at the event for 20% off, or you can purchase an event ticket that includes a discounted book.

In The Chinese Typewriter, Mullaney describes a fascinating series of experiments, prototypes, failures, and successes in the century-long quest for a workable Chinese typewriter—how Chinese characters triumphed over the QWERTY keyboard and laid the foundation for China’s information technology successes today.
