In ‘Alternative Typographic Histories,’ we investigated the relationship between technology and language. We built new timelines and structures that center non-Latin languages by inverting the inherited constraints of Western-centric technologies, and re-examining the evolutionary paths these alternative scripts could have taken. The class engaged in collective research to construct genealogies for various scripts. Then, everyone developed their own project that speculated on each script’s typographic evolution, imagining narratives and forms to materialize their explorations. The produced research was collected into a zine — archiving the stories and discoveries that emerged in those ten weeks.
