The research in this collection lies at the interface between the fields of bilingualism and literacy. It is intended to deepen understanding of the significance of reading and writing as social practices and opens lines of inquiry for research on multilingualism. The authors incorporate theoretical and methodological insights from both fields and provide accounts of everyday practices of reading and writing in different multilingual settings. The focus is primarily on linguistic minority groups in Britain and ont he language and literacy experiences of children and adults in rural and urban communities. Together, the chapters build up a picture of specific ways in which literacy is bound up with cultural practices and with different way s of seeign the world. They also address fundamental questions about the relationshiop between language, literacy and power in multi-ethnic contexts.
