Writing the Economy
Activity, Genre and Technology in the World of BankingeBook - 2006
Writing the Economy: Activity, Genre and Technology in the World of Banking takes readers into the Bank of Canada, that country's central bank and monetary-policy authority. Drawing on qualitative data gathered over two decades (1984-2005) and employing theories of activity, genre, narrative, and situated learning, the book provides an ethnographic account of the role of technology-mediated discourse in the Bank's knowledge-building, policy-making, and public communication.
