About the Project:

How do we visualize and interact with languages - native and foreign? The QWERTY Project seeks to explore the ways in which language has been represented over time and across borders using one of the most important components of communications technology: the keyboard.

 

We invite you to browse the archive and compare these objects for yourself.

 

Thank you to the Media Archaeology Lab at CU Boulder, as well as community participants, for providing us access to this variety of keyboards and wealth of information!
