Literacy Practices in Transition explores the connections between local,
situated literacy practices and global processes of mobility in the
geographical space of the Nordic countries, an example of contemporary mobile
societies. The detailed empirical analyses show how these connections affect
individuals, practices and policies; how the global and local meet in
discourses and practices and how people need to (re)negotiate their way in the
complex and messy spaces in which they move. The volume challenges current
trends in the global standardization of language and literacy education.
Instead, it promotes the idea of literacy as a multiple, multilingual,
multimodal and constantly contestable and negotiable phenomenon, which calls
for the development of language and literacy education that is sensitive to
the needs and experiences of the individual actors.
