New Media Literacies and Participatory Popular Culture Across Borders, Paperback / softback Book

New Media Literacies and Participatory Popular Culture Across Borders Paperback / softback

Edited by Bronwyn (University of Louisville, USA) Williams, Amy A. (American University of Beirut) Zenger


How do students' online literacy practices intersect with online popular culture?

In this book scholars from a range of countries including Australia, Lebanon, Nepal, Qatar, South Africa, Turkey, and the United States illustrate and analyze how literacy practices that are mediated through and influenced by popular culture create both opportunities and tensions for secondary and university students.

The authors examine issues of theory, identity, and pedagogy as they address participatory popular culture sites such as fan forums, video, blogs, social networking sites, anime, memes, and comics and graphic novels.

Uniquely bringing together scholarship about online literacy practices and the growing body of work on participatory popular culture, New Media Literacies and Participatory Popular Culture across Borders makes distinctive contributions to an emerging field of study, pushing forward scholarship about literacy and identity in cross-cultural situations and advancing important conversations about issues of global flows and local responses to popular culture.
