Negotiating Spaces for Literacy Learning addresses two paradoxical currents that are sweeping through the contemporary educational field. The first is the opening up of possibilities for multimodal communication as a result of developments in digital technologies and the sensitivity to multiliteracies. The second is the increasing pressure from standardised testing, accountability and performance measurement which pull curricular and pedagogical practices out of alignment with the everyday informal practices and interests of teachers and learners and narrow opportunities for diverse expressions of literacy. Bringing together an international team of scholars to examine the tensions and struggles that result from the current educational climate, the book provides a much-needed discussion of the intersection of technologies of literacies, education and self. It does so through diverse approaches, including philosophical, theoretical and methodological treatments of multimodality and governmentality, and a range of literacies - early years, primary school, workplace, digital, middle school, secondary school, indigenous, adult and place. With examples taken from all stages of education and in several countries, the book allows readers to explore a range of multimodal practices and the ways in which governmentality plays out across them.

Digital literacy practices have often been celebrated as means of transcending the constraints of the physical world through the production of new social spaces. At the same time, literacy researchers and educators are coming to understand all the ways that place matters. This volume, with contributors from across the globe, considers how space/place, identities, and the role of digital literacies create opportunities for individuals and communities to negotiate living, being, and learning together with and through digital media. The chapters in this volume consider how social, cultural, historical, and political literacies are brought to bear on a range of places that traverse the urban, rural, and suburban/exurban, with emphasis placed on the ways digital technology is used to create identities and do work within social, digital, and material worlds. This includes agentive work in digital literacies from a variety of identities or subjectivities that disrupt metronormativity, urban centrism (and other -isms) on the way to more authentic engagement with their communities and others. Featuring instances of research and practice across intersections of differences (including, but not limited to race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, and language) and places, the contributions in this volume demonstrate the ways that digital literacies hold educative potential.

How can teacher educators engage pre-service and in-service teachers in learning about and framing their teaching from a critical literacy perspective? What does this mean? Why is it important? To address these questions, this book offers a theoretical framework and detailed examples, pedagogical resources, and insights into ways to build critical literacies with teachers in and out of school. Its unique contribution is to bridge critical literacy theory and teacher education. Participants in teacher education programs and professional development settings are often reminded of the need to build curriculum using children’s inquiry questions, passions and interests but generally this message is delivered only through telling (lectures) or showing (examples from other people’s classrooms). This book advances critical literary by explaining and illustrating how teacher educators can do much more—by creating opportunities for pre-service and in-service teachers to "live critical literacies" through experiencing firsthand what it is like to be a learner where the curriculum is built around teachers’ own inquiry questions, passions, and interests.

Recent developments in literacy research argue that literacy is not a neutral package of decontextualized skills, but must be understood in context as situated social practice. Literacy Practices combines key theoretical issues in 'The New Literacy Studies' with illustrative case studies to examine this argument and provide new, more adequate ways of understanding literacy. In particular it argues that an adequate account of literacy must draw on both linguistic and social theory, providing a theory of text and a theory of practice. It emphasizes in particular the roles of literacy in multilingual settings and much of the case study material is drawn from the author's own work in London and Sydney. The book begins by asking what is literacy and what models, myths and metaphors underpin its everyday understandings. It examines the social context of literacy, reviewing important theoretical sources and providing illustrative case studies, going on to review current linguistics perspectives on literacy, with illustrative texts. Mike Baynham also includes a critical review of ideas on reading and writing development from a social practice perspective, and concludes with a discussion of issues in researching literacy as social practice. Literacy Practices will be of interest to students of applied linguistics, language education, cultural studies and adult education, as well as literary theorists and researchers, and anthropologists.

The political landscape of adult education is a rough terrain, made more so by the decisions and issues in adult education practice that are inherently political. Adult educators often grapple with but do not necessarily give voice to the range of political issues and power struggles that frame practice. In recognition of the reality that adult educators interact among competing interests and power in their day to day practice, this volume aims to make more visable what is known but not discussed: the politics of the work of adult education. Grounded in both theory and practice, this volume identifies key political issues within adult education and suggests strategies for reflection and action. The chapters address the examination and negotiation of the political aspects of higher education, adult educators in K-12-focussed colleges of education, literacy education, social welfare reform, professional organizations, and identity of the field. This volume will aid adult educators in reflecting on and sharing the political challenges they confront in their everyday practice of adult education.

The book is a collection of key papers presented at an international conference held at the Indo-American Centre for International studies, Hyderabad, India, in 2004, and includes a few other contributions of an equally high standard. Together, they offer an international perspective on language use and pedagogy, relating to both theory and application, in various countries including Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Switzerland and the United States of America. The volume highlights issues such as identity construction, self-esteem, economic and intellectual empowerment, and the role of the individual and state in the context of English as a second language, and suggest how we may examine and address them.
