(In)formation literacy : a positivist epistemology and a politics of (out)formation
Kapitzke, Cushla (2003) (In)formation literacy : a positivist epistemology and a politics of (out)formation. Educational Theory, 53(1), pp. 37-53.
This article examines school libraries as a context for the emergence of digital literacies through a critical analysis of the signature discourse of library pedagogy, namely, information literacy. Using poststructuralist theory, it outlines a hyperliteracy approach and argues this would be more relevant and effective than the cognitive processing model of the modernist 'information literacy' framework.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
