Talk, Text and Technology : Literacy and Social Practice in a Remote Indigenous Community, Hardback Book

Talk, Text and Technology : Literacy and Social Practice in a Remote Indigenous Community Hardback

Part of the Critical Language and Literacy Studies series

Description

Talk, Text and Technology is an ethnographic exploration of language, learning and literacy in remote Indigenous Australia.

This unique work traces the historical transformation of one Indigenous group across four generations.

The manner in which each generation adopts, adapts and incorporates new innovations and technologies into social practice and cultural processes is illuminated - from first mission contact and the introduction of literacy in the 1930s to youth media practices today.

This book examines social, cultural and linguistic practices and addresses the implications for language and literacy socialisation.
