Languages and Literacies as Mobile and Placed Resources Paperback / softback

Edited by Sue (University of South Australia) Nichols, Collette (Universtiy of South Australia) Snowden



Languages and Literacies as Mobile and Placed Resources explores how languages and literacies are implicated in the complex relationship between place and mobility.

It is a book that represents the next wave in literacy studies in which theories of mobility, networking and globalisation have emerged to account for the dynamic landscape of globally circulating communication resources.

Authors in this volume take up a more complex way of thinking about resources, applying it to consider languages and literacies as assemblages or as parts of assemblages that are involved in learning, teaching and meaning-making.

The book addresses forms of text and mobility that arise in contexts outside of formal education including marketing, charity, journalism, community organisation and parenting.

It also addresses school contexts and higher education settings. Key topics explored include:Consequences of workplace confinementLiteracies as placed resources in the context of rural communitiesLiteracy, sustainability and landscapes for learningDocumenting networked knowledge on tabletsMobilising literacy policy through resourcesGlobal Englishes as placed resourcesLanguages as contextualised resourcesShaping a digital academic writing resource in a transcultural spaceWith an international range of carefully chosen contributors, this book is a must read text for all academics interested in semiotics and literacy studies.
