Abstract:

In this volume scholars from around the world focus on how a Bourdieusian
stance can enable a powerful socicultural and cultural analysis of literacy
education theory and practice and serve as an effective tool in analyzing
relations of hierarchy and domination. Although there has been a growing
body of Bourdieusian-inspired research in various sectors of education,
this book is the first to present both theoretical and practical
articulation of his ideas in the field of literacy education. It brings
together three major clusters of work:

-Rethinking of the doxa of the social fields of language and literacy
education

-Explorations of alternative objectifications of educational fields forming
around cultural and linguistic minorities, new media and technologies

-Studies on the formation of the literate habitus in homes and classrooms,
curriculum and schooling, and addresses theoretical, policy and practical
directions

Pierre Bourdieu and Literacy Education is intended for researchers,
practitioners, and graduate students in literacy education, sociology of
education, and curriculum theory, and as a text for advanced courses in
these areas.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
