Literacy and development research directions Literacy and development research directions

Our work is characterised by:

Exploring ‘alternative methodologies' within education and development, particularly in relation to investigating the implications of adopting ethnographic and participatory approaches within a policy context.

Taking a social practice ‘lens' to researching literacies and adult learning in differing contexts (including academic literacy in higher educational institutions) with a view to enhancing practice.

Inter-disciplinary perspectives and methodologies, particularly collaboration between anthropologists and economists on areas such as literacy measurement.
