Shifting Global Literacy Networks: How Emigration Promotes Informal Literacy Learning in Latvia
Vieira, Kate
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v49 n2 p165-182 Jun 2018
A study of migrants' homeland family members in Latvia, a country undergoing drastic political change, this article examines migration-driven literacy-learning in shifting transnational contexts. Building from critiques of place-based literacy ethnographies, it documents three kinds of informal literacy learning--print literacy learning, digital literacy learning, and anticipatory literacy learning--resulting from the movement of people across shifting spatial and temporal fields.
