Culturally Contested Literacies is a vibrant ethnographic account of the standard cross-cultural dwelling and education stories of six culturally-diverse households in city the USA. Documenting the ways that those households find out about literacies and their meanings in terms of colleges, internal urban environments, and different ethnic teams, Guofang Li's incisive research finds the original stories of fractured city America.

Unlike past examine that fragments quite a few social different types, Culturally Contested Literacies explores the wealthy complexity inside each one relatives as they make feel in their day-by-day family members by way of race, ethnicity, category, and gender. It then juxtaposes the productions of such familial kin throughout and inside of cultural teams with the context of the bigger socio-political and socio-economic formations. through proposing a practical photograph of the various ways in which America’s "rainbow underclass" may stumble upon education, Li argues that city schooling has to be understood when it comes to not just the individual’s cultural and familial milieu, but in addition to the interactive context among the person and colleges.
