Subject: Bilingualism & Literacy: Multilingual Literacies

John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work on bilingualism and literacy:


Multilingual Literacies. Reading and writing different worlds.
Marilyn MARTIN-JONES and Kathryn JONES (The University of Wales)(eds.)
Studies in Written Language and Literacy 10
US & Canada: 1 55619 748 9 / USD 99.00 (Hardcover); 
 1 58811 025 7 / USD 34.95 (Paperback)
Rest of world: 90 272 1804 8 / NLG 198.00 (Hardcover); 
 90 272 1805 6 / NLG 70.00 (Paperback)

The research in this unique collection lies at the interface between
the fields of bilingualism and literacy. It deepens our understanding
of the significance of reading and writing as social practices and
opens up new lines of inquiry for research on multilingualism. The
authors incorporate theoretical and methodological insights from both
fields and provide detailed accounts of everyday practices of reading
and writing in different multilingual settings. The focus is primarily
on linguistic minority groups in Britain and on the language and
literacy experiences of children and adults in rural and urban
communities. Together, the chapters of the volume build up a rich and
illuminating picture of specific ways in which literacy is bound up
with cultural practices and with different ways of seeing the
world. They also address fundamental questions about the relationship
between language, literacy and power in multi-ethnic contexts.
