Barton, David


This is a general introduction to the emerging field of literacy studies. It brings together recent developments in the study of reading and writing from a variety of disciplines in a coherent manner, by showing how new research has contributed to our understanding of literacy practices in a range of settings. The book explores the competing definitions of literacy in contemporary society, and examines the theories of language and learning which underpin new views of literacy. The book is intended as an introduction to literacy studies for the student or general reader, but it will also be invaluable to specialists in one area of study who wish to understand the significance of other areas of literacy studies for their own work.Barton, David is the author of 'Literacy An Introduction to the Ecology of Written Language' with ISBN 9780631190899 and ISBN 0631190899.
