The research in this unique collection lies at the interface
between the fields of bilingualism and literacy. It deepens our
understanding of the significance of reading and writing as social
practices and opens up new lines of inquiry for research on
multilingualism. The authors incorporate theoretical and
methodological insights from both fields and provide detailed
accounts of everyday practices of reading and writing in different
multilingual settings. The focus is primarily on linguistic
minority groups in Britain and on the language and literacy
experiences of children and adults in rural and urban communities.
Together, the chapters of the volume build up a rich and
illuminating picture of specific ways in which literacy is bound up
with cultural practices and with different ways of seeing the
world. They also address fundamental questions about the
relationship between language, literacy and power in multi-ethnic
