Singaporean Boys Constructing Global Literate Selves through Their Reading Practices in and out of School
Loh, Chin Ee
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v44 n1 p38-57 Mar 2013
This article examines how three Singaporean boys constructed their identities as global literate citizens through their reading practices in and out of school. An invisible network of resources contributed to their construction of a global literate identity relevant for local-global markets. The acquisition of a global literate identity as a form of intercultural capital is an unequal game in a neoliberal education system and social networks must be recognized as key nodes for literacy re-vision. (Contains 2 tables, 1 figure and 2 notes.)
