Literacy education in the context of globalisation
Luke, Allan, Iyer, Radha, & Doherty, Catherine (2011) Literacy education in the context of globalisation. In Lapp, Diane & Fisher, Douglas (Eds.) Handbook of Research on Teaching of English Language Arts, 3rd Ed. Routledge, New York.
This review chapter provides an overview of English language literacy education in the contexts of cultural and economic globalisation. Drawing case study examples of India and China, the authors outline three complementary models: the development paradigm, the hegemony paradigm and the new literacies paradigm. The analysis focuses on effects of the spread of English on vernacular languages and the non-synchronous issues raised by digital production cultures. Noting the difficulties of education systems in contending with new literacies - it argues for the reframing of transnational relations, global material conditions and new communications technologies as the objects of critical literacy education.
