How is your Language-on-the-Move Reading Challenge coming along? Another month has passed and you should have ticked off the second book from our list. I read George Steinmetz’ The Devil’s Handwriting in the category “a book about language on the move in history (before mid-20th century)”. The Devil’s Handwriting examines the relationship between ethnographic representations of local people and colonial policy in three different German colonies in Africa, the Pacific and China.
