Book Description:

In the past decade the study of reading and writing has broadened considerably, incorporating perspectives from history, sociology, anthropology and other disciplines. This introduction to the growing field of literacy studies explores recent developments and new research that have contributed to our understanding of literacy practices. The book distinguishes between the competing definitions of literacy in contemporary society, and examines the language and learning theories which underpin new views of literacy. Intended as an introduction to literacy studies for the student or general reader, this text will also be invaluable to literacy specialists who wish to further their understanding in complementary areas of study. This second edition is updated throughout, featuring information on new developments in the field as well as new sections detailing recent completed studies of literacy practices, and the use of new technologies. Additional material on cross-cultural perspectives, US-based examples, and information detailing current educational policy are also included in the new edition.

From the Back Cover:

Exploring recent developments and new research that have contributed to our understanding of literacy practices, this book provides a rounded introduction to the growing field of literacy studies. David Barton reflects on the interdisciplinary growth of the study of reading and writing over the past decade, distinguishing between the competing definitions of literacy in contemporary society, and examining the language and learning theories which underpin them.

Since the publication of the first edition there have been many detailed studies of literacy practices in different settings. This second edition brings the book up to date by summarizing this new research, and showing how it has contributed to our understanding of literacy. The second edition now features a new section on how literacy research is carried out, and explores the use of new technologies. Additional material on cross-cultural perspectives, extensive references to new research, and information detailing current educational policy are also included.
