Hybrid Literacies: The Case of a Quechua Community in the Andes
de la Piedra, Maria Teresa
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v40 n2 p110-128 Jun 2009
Drawing on data from an ethnographic study in a Quechua rural community in the Peruvian Andes, this article examines hybrid literacy practices among bilingual rural speakers in the context of the household and the community. I examine the coexistence of two types of textual practices that operate side by side, at times integrated in the same activity. Hybrid literacies in this Andean community challenge narrow views of literacy, because they include diverse media of communication.
