Book Information

   

Title: Global Literacies and the World Wide Web
Edited By: Gail E Hawisher
Cynthia L. Selfe
Description:

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.
