GLOBAL LITERACIES AND THE WORLD WIDE WEB

Edited by Gail E. Hawisher, University of Illinois and Cynthia
L. Selfe, Michigan Technological University

A critical examination of the new online literacy practices, this book
provides a fascinating look at how they are determined by national,
cultural and educational contexts. Hawisher and Selfe have brought
together scholars from around the world, including Hungary, Australia,
Palau, Cuba and the United States, in an illuminating examination of
online practices in their specific culture. A lively and original
challenge to conventional notions of the relationship between literacy
and technology, this book celebrates the dynamic capacity of these new
self-defined literacy communities with their continuing redefinition
of ethnicity and differences.

MULTILITERACIES
Literacy Learning and the Design of Social Futures

Edited by Bill Cope, Centre for Workplace Communication, Australia,
and Mary Kalantzis, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology

Multiliteracies addresses the question of the future of literacy
teaching: what should be taught and how. This new collection brings
together the work of the most exciting voices in the field. Each of
these specialists proposes a new pedagogy which recognises both
cultural and linguistic diversity, and the many ways of representing
meaning beyond language, such as the visual.

Contributors include these leading international literacy researchers:
Elsa Auerbach, Courtney Cazden, Norman Fairclough, James Paul Gee,
Gunther Kress, Joseph Le Bianco, Carmen and Allen Luke and Sarah
Michaels.

SITUATED LITERACIES
Reading and Writing in Context

Edited by David Barton, Roz Ivanic and Mary Hamilton, all at Lancaster
University, UK

Situated Literacies is a rich and varied collection of key writings
from leading international scholars in the field of literacy. Each
contribution, written in a clear, accessible style, makes the link
between literacies in specific contexts and broader practices. Among
the issues discussed are: the visual and material aspects, concepts of
time and space, how literacies shape and sustain identities in
communities, the relationship between texts and their practices and
the role of discourse analysis. Together, these studies, along with a
foreword by Denny Taylor, make a timely and important contribution to
understanding the ways in which literary practices are part of the
broader social processes.
