Résumé

This book and its contributors – all of whom view literacy research as explicitly political and potentially transformative – provide images and approaches that show how work with/in the local can and must be connected to global issues in order to effect political action. Researchers and educators are urged to take activist stances that directly affect and address the needs of all people across lines of race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender.
The book is organized into three parts, each focusing on different aspects of literacy research for political action. These include theoretical considerations and methodological approaches that support this work ; a reconsideration of the roles of participants as collaborators in this kind of literacy research ; and finally, examples of projects specifically aimed at addressing global issues through local research for political action.
