Reviews & Statements

Willie van Peer, Sonia Zyngier and Vander Viana can be congratulated in putting together Literary Education and Digital Learning. It is a useful addition to the subject literature, bringing together many ideas for discussion and even argumentation (e.g. the suggestion to bring more mathematics into the humanities curriculum and the variety of methods and technology suggested for studies in the humanities).
