Although a large body of research emphasises the collaborative nature of adolescents' multimodal composing processes in and out of school, little is known about how or why collaborative partnerships might differ across composers or digital tools.

Barden, Owen – Literacy, 2019
This paper contributes a definition of "mobile literacy." This is worthwhile because although mobile, internet-enabled devices are increasingly prevalent in many people's lives, mobile literacy appears to be under-theorised and lacking definition. After giving an overview of the scale and nature of mobile device use, the paper develops…

Kuby, Candace R.; Crawford, Shonna – Literacy, 2018
Posthumanism, or the material turn, refuses to take the distinction between human and nonhuman for granted.
