The chapter reviews some of the key features in what has been called the ‘New Literacy Studies’. Complementing Street’s chapter is another foundational overview chapter by Barton, reviewing in addition to the focus on events and practices, key constructs such as mediators, mentors, brokers, networks and sponsors. Barton contextualizes literacy in an increasingly, textually mediated social world. The themes he identifies are picked up and developed in other chapters, Ivanic on literacy practices in further education, Farrell on the workplace and the knowledge economy, Hull and Nelson on the aesthetics of literacy.
