Title: Talk, Text and Technology
Subtitle: Literacy and Social Practice in a Remote Indigenous Community
Written By: Inge Kral
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847697585
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

"Talk, Text and Technology" is an ethnographic exploration of language, learning and literacy in remote Indigenous Australia. This unique work traces the historical transformation of one Indigenous group across four generations. The manner in which each generation adopts, adapts and incorporates new innovations and technologies into social practice and cultural processes is illuminated - from first mission contact and the introduction of literacy in the 1930s to youth media practices today. This book examines social, cultural and linguistic practices and addresses the implications for language and literacy socialisation.
