Overview

Twenty-four leading literacy researchers contribute 17 chapters describing how they apply particular disciplinary perspectives to their research. The second edition reflects significant shifts in the prevailing disciplinary and theoretical perspectives shaping literacy research and in the methodological approaches employed, since publication of the 1992 edition. Of the 17 chapters, only four are revised versions of original chapters, with the material now drawing from a range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, rhetoric, education, composition theory, cultural studies, communications studies, and literary criticism.
