Lewis named co-editor of Expanding Literacies in Education Series

LewisC-2013Cynthia Lewis, Emma Birkmaier Professor in Educational Leadership, has been named a co-editor for the Expanding Literacies in Education Series, published by the Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group.
From the Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group: The Expanding Literacies in Education Series features books that highlight the changing landscape and explore new directions and theoretical tools in literacy studies as it is transforming education–including material, embodied, affective, and global emphases; digital and virtual worlds; and transcultural and cosmopolitan spaces. Some books in the series locate emerging literacies in practices that extend or trouble their historical uses and functions. Others cross disciplinary borders, bringing new epistemologies to bear on evolving practices that question the very foundations of literacy scholarship. Polemical and forward-looking, encompassing public and vernacular pedagogies as well as formal education, these books engage researchers, graduate students, and teacher educators with new and emerging theoretical approaches to literacy practices in all of their complexities, challenges, and possibilities.
Lewis has also recently been appointed to the editorial board of Research in the Teaching of English, the research journal for the National Council of Teachers of English. Research in the Teaching of English (RTE) is a multidisciplinary journal composed of original research and scholarly essays on the relationships between language teaching and learning at all levels, preschool through adult.
