This era raises fresh questions about literacy and learning in the global economy and digital age. Literacies: A Critical Sourcebook, provides a collection of readings on literacy with a range of perspectives on these definitions and controversies. This new collection offers a framework to assist in understanding literacy as a more complex and layered phenomenon than disciplinary categories alone can convey. Though no single volume can do justice to the bountiful scholarship on literacy, Literacies: A Critical Sourcebook, includes both traditional studies that have had an influence on the field and studies that rely on newer lines of inquiry. It is a collection representative of diverse perspectives and research methodologies that, taken together, offer a rich understanding of how literacy works.
