What was the purpose of this communication technology?
This communication through history research paper will be an essay focused on a type of communication technology. You will write and argument about Edison’s Electric Pen and what you think about the communication technologies that are no longer in use, you can keep the following questions in mind as you work on organizing your essays: What was the purpose of this communication technology? Who was the audience of this new invention? What was it trying to build upon/make better? How did it work? Why did this new communication technology fail in having a lasting impression on the history of communication?
The expectation is that the paper will be 5-6 pages in length, 12 pt font, double spaced, regular margins. I am expecting your paper to have at least 2 primary sources (sources written from the time period of the invention/communication method) and 2 secondary sources, written by scholars after the fact.
