Abstract:

This book explores changing understandings of literacy and its place in
contemporary workplace settings. By taking a social perspective, it
challenges traditional thinking about workplace literacy as functional
skills, and enables readers to see the complexity of literacy practices and
their embeddedness in culture, knowledge, and action. A mixture of
ethnographic studies, analysis, and personal reflections makes these ideas
accessible and relevant to a wide range of readers in the fields of adult
literacy and language education and helps to bridge the divide between
theory and practice in the field of workplace education.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
