This volume makes a timely contribution to our understanding of literacy as a multi-faceted, complexly situated activity. Each chapter provides the reader with a fresh perspective into a different site for literate behaviour, approaches, design and relationships, and offers an exploration into the use of literacy theories to inform policy and practice, particularly in regard to curriculum.

Bringing together international experts in the field, the contributing authors represent a wide variety of theoretical and research perspectives which cover literacy in various forms, including:

* transformative literacy
* survey literacy
* academic literacies
* information literacy in the workplace
* digital literacy.

Landscapes of Specific Literacies in Contemporary Society suggests that literacy curriculum needs to evolve from its current perspective if it is to cater for the demands of the 21st century contemporary globalised society. The book will be of key interest to researchers and academics in the fields of education, curriculum studies and the sociology of education, as well as to policy makers and literacy specialists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a book with a social conscience, as these highlights demonstrate. It is at its best when it links the ideology of its authors with real-life practice, as it does excellently in Duckworth's chapter. As a whole, it is sometimes dense with theory, but it is energetic, exciting, at times radical, and ultimately accessible. It is an important book for anyone involved in post-compulsory education and for everyone who is concerned with social inclusion and pedagogy."- Lucy Langley, Journal of Information Literacy, June 2015
