Abstract:

"Following on the groundbreaking contributions of Deborah Brandt's Literacy in American Lives--a literacy ethnography exploring how ordinary Americans have been affected by changes in literacy, public education, and structures of power--Literacy, Economy, and Power expands Brandt's vision, exploring the relevance of her theoretical framework as it relates to literacy practices in a variety of current and historical contexts, as well as in literacy's expanding and global future. Bringing together scholars from rhetoric, composition, and literacy studies, the book offers thirteen engrossing essays that extend and challenge Brandt's commentary on the dynamics between literacy and power. The essays cover many topics, including the editor of the first Native American newspaper, the role of a native Hawaiian in bringing literacy to his home islands, the influence of convents and academies on nineteenth-century literacy, and the future of globalized digital literacies."--Publisher's description.
