Abstract: On Wednesday, April 6, 2011, Professor Denise Schmandt-Besserat sat down for an oral history interview with UT iSchool students, Meredith Bush, Javier Ruedas, and Mark Firmin to talk about her career as an archaeologist, as an academic professor at UT, and her record-keeping habits. The group was particularly interested to know how Professor Schmandt-Besserat developed her theory of how writing evolved out of the use of small tokens, and how computers helped her in this endeavor. Professor Schmandt-Besserat is the author of Before Writing and How Writing Came About.
