Documenting the ways in which these families learn about literacies and their meanings in relation to schools, inner-city environments, and other ethnic groups, Guofang Li\'s incisive analysis reveals the unique experiences of fractured urban America - the dynamics of how and in what conditions the families take up contradictory positions of conformity and resistance within and across various discourses and boundaries.\" \"Unlike prior research that fragments various social categories, Culturally Contested Literacies explores the rich complexity within each family as it makes sense of its daily relations in terms of literacy, race, ethnicity, class, and gender. It juxtaposes the productions of such familial relations across different racial and cultural groups within the context of the larger socio-political and socio-economic formations. By presenting a realistic picture of the varying ways that America\'s \"rainbow underclass\" might encounter schooling, Li argues that urban education must be understood in relation not only to the individual\'s cultural and familial milieu, but also to the interactive context between the individual and schools.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
