Heritage Literacy: Adoption, Adaptation, and Alienation of Multimodal Literacy Tools
Rumsey, Suzanne Kesler
College Composition and Communication, v60 n3 p573-586 Feb 2009
This article presents the concept of heritage literacy, a decision-making process by which people adopt, adapt, or alienate themselves from tools and literacies passed on between generations of people. In an auto-ethnographic study, four generations of a single family and Amish participants from the surrounding community were interviewed to explore the concept. (Contains 3 figures and 3 notes.)
