This chapter first outlines the Anglo-Saxon approach of the 'New Literacy Studies', putting it in relation to the French 'Anthropology of Writing' tradition. Research in paperwork in educational workplaces is then described to show how a focus on literacy practices from an ethnographic perspective can give insight into broader social processes.

Bibliographic note

Don't know what Editions Educagri policy is on archiving postprints so have again put a 36 month embargo on it, if someone could check that would be great.
