Literacy and Development is a collection of case studies of literacy projects around the world. The contributors present their in-depth studies of everyday uses and meanings of literacy and of the literacy programmes that have been developed to enhance them. Arguing that ethnographic research can and should inform literacy policy in developing countries, the book extends current theory and itself contributes to policy making and programme building. A large cross-section of society is covered, with chapters on Women's literacy in Pakistan, Ghana, and Rural Mali, literacy in village Iran, and an 'Older Peoples' Literacy Project. This international collection includes case studies from: Peru, Pakistan, India, South Africa, Bangladesh, Mali, Nepal, Iran, Eritrea, Ghana.

Literacy Lives in Transcultural Times

Combining language research with digital, multimodal, and critical literacy, this book uniquely positions issues of transcultural spaces and cosmopolitan identities across an array of contexts. Studies of everyday diasporic practices across places, spaces, and people's stories provide authentic pictures of people living in and with diversity. Its distinctive contribution is a framework to relate observation and analysis of these flows to language development, communication, and meaning making. Each chapter invites readers to reflect on the dynamism and complexity of spaces and contexts in an age of increasing mobility, political upheaval, economic instabilities, and online/offline landscapes.

Language and Language-in-Education Planning in the Pacific Basin examines and reviews the ecological context (including, e.g., the historical, political and educational issues) of language planning in 14 countries in the Pacific basin: Japan, the two Koreas, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. The planning goals pursued in these states are then examined in terms of an overarching view of language planning. The book provides the only up-to-date overview and review of language policy in the region and challenges those interested in language policy and planning to think about how such goals might be achieved in the context of language ecology. In a world where languages and their uses and users are changing rapidly, and where governments and other political bodies are driving planned language change, there is a need to understand and consider how and why language planning is done. The book will be of interest to specialists interested in language and education, and to more general readers wishing to understand the dynamics of history and politics and its impact on language and language-in-education policy decisions.

The Kurdish Nationalist Movement

David Romano's 2006 book focuses on the Kurdish case to try and make sense of ethnic nationalist resurgence generally. In a world rent by a growing number of such conflicts, the questions posed about why, how and when such challenges to the state are mounted are becoming increasingly urgent. Throughout the author analyses these questions through the lens of social movement theory, considering in particular politico-social structures, resource mobilization strategies and cultural identity. His conclusions offer some thought-provoking insights into Kurdish nationalism, as well as into the strengths and weaknesses of various social movement theories. While the book offers a rigorous conceptual approach, the empirical material - the result of the author's personal experiences - makes it a compelling read. It will find a readership amongst students of the Middle East, and also amongst those interested in ethnic relations, minority rights, terrorism, state repression, social movement theories and many other related issues.

'. . . a major piece of work and deserves a wide audience.' - Justin Dillon, Environmental Education Research 'As the book presents a rich collection of research in the area, at one place for the convenience of researchers, the scholars would undoubtedly feel it worth having.' - Jandhyala B.G. Tilak, Journal of Educational Planning and Administration There have been dramatic changes in education policy throughout the world in the final quarter of the 20th Century. This important volume presents an invaluable collection of previously published and specially commissioned articles which capture these major changes in educational policy. Driven by demands for efficiency and performance, traditional liberal views of education as promoting and providing the ideals of an educated elite and empowered autonomous individuals have been supplanted. Increasingly there have been moves from localized and national policies towards international policies, and a closer integration of schools into the world. Education policy and associated management styles have overtly incorporated current market-led economic theories and in major western nations where education has been seen as a traditional welfare right, policy has moved to a commodification of education and to various forms of privatisation.

Understanding Work and Literacy

The nature and effects of current common understandings of the relationship between work and literacy were examined along with the typical design and objectives of workplace literacy programs for members of Australia's work force. Special attention was paid to the following topics: changing demands of work and literacy at work; discourses of literacy at work as skill; new ways of work and new worker identities; effects of new discourses of and at work; current understandings of workplace literacy training; potential futures for workplace literacy training; workplaces as "communities of practice"; opportunities for authentic workplace literacy provision; and mechanisms to access workplaces to promote literacy. It was concluded that, in addition to recognizing the opportunities existing legislation provides for the marketing and development of appropriate workplace literacy training, those involved in the field of workplace literacy must acknowledge the shelf life of legislation and the need for active promotion of continuing legislation that works for the benefit of all workplace participants. It was further concluded that the fluid political situation within which workplace literacy training occurs and its contingency on factors extending beyond traditional and emerging educational contexts and concerns must also be acknowledged.

Discourse and power in educational organizations

Discourse and power in educational organizations Author David Corson

In today's post-modern and post-traditional institutions, power is mainly exercised through the generation of consent, through the distribution of ideologies and through the subtle indoctrination of self-disciplining practices, rather than through the use of force or brute authority. This change in the nature of institutional practices focuses the role that language has always had in the exercise of power. To address the topic as it affects educational organizations, the editor combines two central traditions in contemporary social science inquiry; concern for the post-modern and post-positivist condition of the contemporary world; and concern for the praxis of critical theory. Contributors to the book's 14 chapters approach their topics from either or both of these traditions. In his introductions to the two parts of the book, the editor suggests how these traditions can combine and at the same time respond to the challenges of educational concerns within the post-modern condition

with The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching It cannot be overemphasized that the greatest value of this study is that it enables us to examine both the national and international aspects of the academic profession. The survey explores just how scholars see international links and what use they make of research from other countries. Looked at as a whole, these chapters reveal that, while the separate countries have sharply contrasting higher education histories and governance arrangements, a community of interest is emerging. The study indicates areas that academics around the world have in common. ?from The International Academic ProfessionBased on the Carnegie Foundation2s pioneering international survey of the academic profession The International Academic Profession provides an analysis of the professoriate in fourteen countries.
