Abstract [en]

This article is an attempt to seek possible ways to link local ethnographies of literacy towards relationships of power and institutional processes in an ever changing world. Starting from cognitive and socio-cultural perspectives, the current notion of literacy is described as pluralistic, heterogeneous and complex phenomena. Our point of departure is that ways with word and texts are meaning making processes. The process of reading and writing is always linked to meaning making in terms of interpretation, understanding, exploring and configuration. According to Gadamer the »space between» is a pre-condition for making new interpretations, which relates to Homi Bhabha’s concept of a ›third space›. From a hermeneutic perspective mea-ning-making through literacy can be described, discussed and analyzed. From a post-colonial perspective possibilities for meaning-making are made visible and analyzed in matters of openness, limitation or prevention.

Abstract [sv]

Dagligen tar vi alla del av nya litterata utmaningar oavsett om vi är ett barn som klottrar för att namnge en teckning eller använder tangentbordet för att se klippet på YouTube, två akademiker som försöker skriva en artikel om literacy, en medieanalytiker som försöker dekonstruera budskapet i en reklamfilm, en taxi-chaufför som kör en ny rutt genom att läsa stadskartan eller en läsare som försöker förstå innehållet i den här artikeln. Shirley Brice Heaths nu klassiska studie från 1983 visar inte bara på olika språkliga och kulturella skillnader mellan grupper i relation till klass och etnicitet, den inbegriper också ett samhälle i förändring med effekter på regional och lokal nivå.
