Overview

This text explores the different ways in which the various social practices in which people participate becomes signed as learning, how and why that occurs and with what consequences. It takes seriously the linguistic turn in social theory to draw upon semiotics and poststructuralism through which to explore the significance of lifelong learning as an emerging discourse in education.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The aspiration of the authors is that their text will have interesting things to say about lifelong learning and the application of a semiotic approach. … They have written a book that draws upon a range of intellectual resources to provide various significations of lifelong learning and this is a worthwhile project when set against the economism of education policy … . In conclusion, this is a worthwhile text that would be of interest to research students and academics … ." (James Avis, Studies in the Education of Adults, Vol. 41 (1), Spring, 2009)
