Foreword: Literacy and a new global citizenry?

Chapter


Abstract


  • The title of this volume invites us to see literacy both in a new outfit of

    its own and as part of extensive new ensemble of social, cultural and economic connections. But as we recover from our drawn-out millennial dose

    of global ‘innovativ-itis’, our resistances may be up, and we may find ourselves looking more sceptically at the terms ‘new’ and ‘global’. We may

    wonder, as the old challenges facing literacy educators reconfigure around

    us, what new understandings and opportunities actually do appear in these

    new global times.
