Women and Literacy: Local and Global Inquiries for a New Century

Beth Daniell (Editor), Peter Mortensen (Editor)

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Path-breaking research on women and literacy in the past decade established conventions and advanced innovative methods that push the making of knowledge into new spheres of inquiry. Taking these accomplishments as a point of departure, this volume emphasizes the diversity-of approaches and subjects-that characterizes the next generation of research on women and literacy. It builds on and critiques scholarship in literacy studies, composition studies, rhetorical theory, gender studies, postcolonial theory, and cultural studies to open new venues for future research.
