In the Weeds: Critical Literacy Conversations with Allan Luke
Pandya, Jessica Zacher
Curriculum Inquiry, v49 n2 p191-202 2019
In this essay, I discuss Allan Luke's influence on my own critical digital literacy research, beginning with the influence of his monograph "The Social Construction of Literacy in the Primary School" (1994/2018b) and continuing to the present day. I address some of his most admirable qualities: his way of talking about theory and practice with teachers; his efforts to bring critical literacy into the Australian national curriculum; his influence on scholarship in the US, but especially around the world; and his contributions as an editor who expanded what counts as education research and normative definitions of literacy outside mainstream ideals.
