Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: A Cultural Approach to Discourse
Written By: Odette Ambouroue
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403943346
Description:

Drawing on wide cultural knowledge and experience, Shi-xu critiques
universalism in discourse studies in terms of its adherence to the western
intellectual model, its whiteness and cultural singularity. In this book he
offers a more culturally pluralist approach that advocates the construction
of theory and use of methodology from an innovative position in-between
Eastern and Western cultures. He provides a set of practical discourse
research strategies,illustrated by a set of culturally wide ranging texts,
to send out a call to discourse analysts who want to look beyond their own
intellectual traditions towards a culturally- based discourse analysis
relevant to current global realities.
