Critical Literacy, the Future of English and the Work of Mourning
Howie, Mark
English in Australia, v43 n3 p69-78 2008
In this article I use the occasion of farewelling my Year 12 students at the end of their schooling, some intertextual references to "Hamlet", and some conceptual frames of Derrida, to reflect dialogically on the role of critical literacy in Australian English curricula in the past, the present and into the future. (Contains 11 notes.)
