Rewriting Literacy: Culture and the Discourse of the Other

Synopsis

This book links such fields as linguistics, anthropology, sociolinguistics, and education to illustrate how the problem of literacy is embedded in a social and cultural context. The majority of the essays are based on original, primary research and bring to light important concerns about the highly political nature of literacy. These concerns, often ignored by the more traditionally oriented educationalists, are the highlights of these essays that explore literacy from a critical perspective.
