New perspectives on language and education


Pahl (education, U. of Sheffield) and Rowsell (English education, Rutgers U.) present a series of studies from around the world to show how the emerging discipline of new literacy can be translated into practice. Each study examines the intersection between multimodality and new literary studies through closely observed instances of practice. The studies address topics such as home media practice, teen literacies, and local-global literacies in South Australia and South Africa. Distributed in the US by UTP Distribution.
