Languages and Literacies as Mobile and Placed Resources by Sue Nichols

Languages and Literacies as Mobile and Placed Resources explores how languages and literacies are implicated in the complex relationship between place and mobility. It is a book that represents the next wave in literacy studies in which theories of mobility, networking and globalisation have emerged to account for the dynamic landscape of globally circulating communication resources. Authors in this volume take up a more complex way of thinking about resources, applying it to consider languages and literacies as assemblages or as parts of assemblages that are involved in learning, teaching and meaning-making. The book addresses forms of text and mobility that arise in contexts outside of formal education including marketing, charity, journalism, community organisation and parenting. It also addresses school contexts and higher education settings.

Key topics explored include:

  • Consequences of workplace confinement
  • Literacies as placed resources in the context of rural communities
  • Literacy, sustainability and landscapes for learning
  • Documenting networked knowledge on tablets
  • Mobilising literacy policy through resources
  • Global Englishes as placed resources
  • Languages as contextualised resources
  • Shaping a digital academic writing resource in a transcultural space

With an international range of carefully chosen contributors, this book is a must read text for all academics interested in semiotics and literacy studies.
