Description:
This paper gives a theoretical framing for the study of literacy practices in context, focusing on issues of identity, multimodality and polycontextuality. It describes the 'icon mapping' methodology used to elicit students' perspectives on the polycontextuality of their literacy practices, providing both quantitative and qualitative findings emerging from the analysis of this data. Two contrasting student case studies - one of a Catering student and one of a Music student - show how different the interface can be between life, workplace and college. The concept of 'boundary object' is shown to be useful for theorising this interface.
