LANDSCAPES OF LITERACY

AN ETHNOGRAPHIC STUDY OF FUNCTIONAL LITERACY IN MARGINAL PHILIPPINE COMMUNITIES

by MARIA LUISA CANIESO DORONILA

What does it mean to be functionally literate? How can literacy be measured? And does it invariably promote development? This book examines such questions in the context of six types of marginal Philippine community, ranging from island fishing people to upland farmers and rice cultivators. It demonstrates that the concepts of literacy and numeracy cannot be seperated from their social and cultural settings and that measures of literacy used in industrialized countries are often inappropriate.

As well as being a richly fasinating ethnographic study, the book has important inplications for the design of community literacy programmes.

Landscapes of Literacy is the winner of the 1994 International Award for Literacy Research, co-sponsored by the UNESCO Institute for Education, Hamburg, and Human Resources Development, Canada.
