Discourse and the construction of identity in a community of learning and a community of practice

Ewing, Bronwyn F. (2005) Discourse and the construction of identity in a community of learning and a community of practice. In Stehlik, Tom & Carden, Pam (Eds.) Beyond communities of practice: theory as experience. Post Pressed, Flaxton, Qld, pp. 149-170.

Abstract

This chapter explores the articulation of Critical Discourse Theory and a Social Theory of Learning through their common concern with identity, participation, and membership; it will also address its application in methodological analysis. The case in point is a study in progress (Ewing 2005) addressing the nature and effects of the Discourse of Mathematics on identities of participation and non-participation in Mathematics classrooms, construed as learning communities. In doing so, it draws together aspects of the work of Lave and Wenger (1991) and Wenger (1998) on communities of practice and that of Fairclough (1995; 1992; 2001) on Critical Discourse Theory and Critical Discourse Analysis.
