    Literacy and Gender: Researching Texts, Contexts and Readers (Literacies) View larger image. By: Gemma Moss. Using fine-grained ethnographic analysis of reading in context, this book outlines methods for researching literacy as a social practice and understanding how different versions of what counts as literacy can be created in the same site. The researcher takes a social perspective of literacy in this study, conceptualizing it as “as a social, cultural, historical, political, and economic context-bound set of life-long practices” (p. 18). Literacy thus is a dynamic concept which is highly bound to contextual factors.

    The book begins by asking what is literacy and what models, myths and metaphors underpin its everyday understandings. It examines the social context of literacy, reviewing important theoretical sources and providing illustrative case studies, going on to review current linguistics perspectives on literacy, with illustrative texts.3/5(1).
