Maybin, Janet (2000). The new literacy studies, context, intertexuality and discourse. In: Barton, David; Hamilton, Mary and Ivanič, Roz eds. Situated Literacies: Reading and Writing in Context. London: Routledge, pp. 199–209.



[Exerpt from Introduction]: This chapter draws together some theoretical and methodological threads from the various different studies of literacy represented within this book. These studies share common roots in the anthropological ethnographic tradition of documenting literacy activities in small communities, but also go beyond this tradition in their analysis of how the meanings of local events are linked to broader cultural institutions and practices.
