Literacy Lives in Transcultural Times (Hardcover)
about this item
The question this book asks is what happens when scholars consider transculturalism and cosmopolitanism at the center of their work in language and literacy research? Combining language research with digital, multimodal and critical literacy, it uniquely positions the issues of transcultural spaces and cosmopolitan identities across an array of contexts. Studies of everyday diasporic practices across places, spaces, and people’s stories provide authentic pictures of people living in and with diversity. The distinctive contribution of this book is a framework to relate observation and analysis of these flows to language development, communication, and meaning making. Each chapter invites readers to reflect on the dynamism and complexity of spaces and contexts in an age of increasing mobility, political upheaval, economic instabilities, and online/offline landscapes.
