Literacy and Literacies

Texts, Power, and Identity

Literacy and Literacies

Developing a new synthesis of literacy studies, this book explores the domain of power through questions of colonialism, modern state formation, educational systems and official versus popular literacies. James Collins and Richard Blot present a critical discussion of particular cases and discuss the role of literacies in the formation of class, gender, and ethnic identity.


 Reviews:

"Collins and Blot aruge cogently that considerations of history, power, and subjectivity must inform any study of the complexity of orality and its inseperability from writing..... Recommended." Choice
