Date: 10 June 2014 Time: 1.00-2.00 pm
Venue: C89, County South, Lancaster University
At the next Literacy Research Discussion Group session (Tuesday 10 June) we will be pleased to welcome Angela Brzeski (Lancaster University) who will be speaking on:
'Daddy's girl', the 'good' student and others … the multi-faceted identities of college students
My talk focuses on a theme which emerged during my PhD study which investigated the relationship between home and college literacy practices of Further Education students and their engagement in learning. This theme was literacy, learning and identity which, initially, I found to be a real challenge but it turned out to be absolutely fascinating.My starting point was to ask myself are there specific literacy practices associated with specific identities? If so, how far do these relate to students' engagement or disengagement?This talk provides my answers to these questions.
In my study, I took an ethnographic approach to research the literacy practices of eight students at a college in the North West of England.I carried out observations, interviews and analysis of their work, which generated a wealth of interesting data.
My talk will also reveal my contributions to the theory of literacy and education together with classroom practice.
