As a student, there are a number of Text Technologies courses you can take to get involved with Wai-te-ata Press.
From cave painting to Kindle, explore books and printed texts in all their myriad forms—both historical and contemporary—and their influence across cultures and society.
See how these forms of text have endured and evolved, and discover the technology used to create them. In Text Technology courses, you'll have opportunities to get hands-on experience in the printery at Victoria University of Wellington's Wai-te-Ata Press. Some courses include an introduction to digital tools and techniques for critical and creative storytelling.
The University offers a carefully chosen selection of Text Technology courses. They aren't available as a major or minor, but you can take them as an enhancement or extension to your main subject, or as an elective in many disciplines. They go especially well with Linguistics, Media Studies, Architecture, Design, History, English, Theatre, Music and languages.
If you want fascinating insights into the transmission of human knowledge, Text Technologies is for you.
"For me, the joy of studying print culture is that it is language-made material."
