Global Citizenship for Adult Education

Advancing Critical Literacies for Equity and Social Justice

Petra A. Robinson (Redaktør) ; Kamala V. Williams (Redaktør) ; Maja Stojanović (Redaktør)

This book promotes the development of nontraditional literacies in adult education, especially as these critical literacies relate to global citizenship, equity, and social justice. As this edited collection argues, a rapidly changing global environment and proliferation of new media technologies have greatly expanded the kinds of literacies that one requires in order to be an engaged global citizen.

This book promotes the development of nontraditional literacies in adult education, especially as these critical literacies relate to global citizenship, equity, and social justice. As this edited collection argues, a rapidly changing global environment and proliferation of new media technologies have greatly expanded the kinds of literacies that one requires in order to be an engaged global citizen. It is imperative for adult educators and learners to understand systems, organizations, and relationships that influence our lives as citizens of the world. By compiling a comprehensive list of foundational, sociocultural, technological and informational, psychosocial and environmental, and social justice literacies, this volume offers readers theoretical foundations, practical strategies, and additional resources.

"This book provides an excellent framework for understanding what citizenship looks like in this changing world. To be an active citizen, one needs to be aware that literacy is more than reading, writing, and math. The way that technologies have infiltrated all aspects of our lives means that we need more knowledge about how to receive, interpret, filter, and understand the impact and content. This book provides a framework for understanding these many different literacies." — Michelle Glowacki-Dudka, Professor of Adult, Higher, and Community Education, Ball State University, USA.

"The book is a significant and desperately needed critical work in the fields of adult, professional, community, human resource development, and higher education. Robinson, Williams and Stojanovic have collected insights from around the world to expand and explain in-depth the literacies necessary for today’s realities of diversity, identity, global citizenship, and social justice. They also provide concrete resources for relating theory to practice in youth and adult literacy education. I find it to be a "must read" for graduate adult education programs and for all of us who seek to identify and enact critical cosmopolitan values, learning, and interactions." — Joellen E. Coryell Asst. Dean for Educational Partnerships and Enrollment and Professor of graduate programs in Adult, Professional, and Community Education, Texas State University, USA.

"In its global reach, this volume does what we have lacked for too long in adult education research and practice: coming together to face the critical issues of the world. The book provides comprehensive guidelines for the politics of integration, global dialogue, and hope. The book demonstrates the life-sustaining bonds of reciprocity and belonging that bound us together and demands that we must act together to overcome the idols of capitalism and personal creed that pervert humanity and nurture the current inequalities and injustices." — Juha Suoranta, Professor of Adult Education, Tampere University, Finland.
