Reading and Writing the Self as a College Student: Fluidity and ambivalence across contexts.
Date: 10 October 2006 Time: 12.50 pm
Literacy Research Centre Seminar Series
Reading and Writing the Self as a College Student: Fluidity and ambivalence across contexts. Roz Ivanič and Candice SatchwellThe session will start with an introduction to the LRDG Seminar Series programme for this term. There will then be a short presentation of some 'work in progress' to get some discussion going.The Literacies for Learning in Further Education project is finding that students identify with the reading and writing that they do in some contexts, but not in others. We are finding that students vary in the extent to which they identify with the roles and positions inscribed in texts and practices the encounter in college. Our aim is to find ways of making the reading and writing associated with their college courses more compatible with their sense of who they are and who they want to become. In this presentation we explore some of these issues, and open up discussion about how 'literacy practices' are related to 'identity'.Everyone welcome.
