This provocative new title in the NCRLL Collection is a call to action for new and experienced scholars to re-examine their biases and assumptions and adopt a more critically conscious stance in their work. Balancing a historical grounding with contemporary research, this book focuses on how critical theories are manifested in language and literacy research. The authors examine overlooked roots and routes to present-day critical thinking and predict how branches of theorizing may emerge, evolve, and transform research in a democratic society.
This volume situates critical theorizing in a global context, provides a framework for understanding shifts in critical theorizing, features innovative, critical analysis of current language and literacy research, and challenges new and experienced researchers to actively address social justice concerns.
