In this volume scholars from around the world focus on how a Bourdieusian stance can enable a powerful
socicultural and cultural analysis of literacy education theory and practice and serve as an effective tool in
analyzing relations of hierarchy and domination. Although there has been a growing body of Bourdieusian-
inspired research in various sectors of education, this book is the first to present both theoretical and
practical articulation of his ideas in the field of literacy education. It brings together three major clusters of
work: Rethinking of the doxa of the social fields of language and literacy educationExplorations of
alternative objectifications of educational fields forming around cultural and linguistic minorities, new
media and technologiesStudies on the formation of the literate habitus in homes and classrooms,
curriculum and schooling, and addresses theoretical, policy and practical directionsPierre Bourdieu and
Literacy Education is intended for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in literacy education,
sociology of education, and curriculum theory, and as a text for advanced courses in these areas.
