Review

This impressive volume consolidates cutting-edge work across several disciplines to outline a field of digital media and new literacies. Crisply edited to be readable yet exhaustively researched enough to serve as an authoritative resource, this book has created a backbone [for] the field and is sure to earn a place on almost any literacy, technology or media studies scholars bookshelf. –Kurt Squire, University of Wisconsin-Madison

With their fingers on the pulse of digital literacies research, Colin Lankshear and Michele Knobel have again pulled together a volume as far-reaching in its consequence as it is rich in theory and analysis. Edited and synthesized for academic and lay audiences alike, this volume will prove a lasting contribution to the contemporary conversation among literacy scholars, technology and media researchers, pop culture theorists and those with interests in contemporary education, theory and practice, and literacy and learning in the twenty-first century. Highly recommended. –Constance Steinkuehler, University of Wisconsin-Madison
