14 SES 12 A, Artifactual Literacy for the Public Good: Inciting Meaning-Making through the Artifactual
This presentation will focus on home literacy practices of children between the ages of 8 and 12. The presentation will draw on an Arts and Humanities Research Council project called ‘Writing in the Home and in the Street’. In this project, children made scrap books describing their home literacy practices. The research used an ethnographic perspective to interrogate the scrap books in relation to everyday lives and identities. These scrapbooks articulated ways in which their home learning identities, which were located in intergenerational practices such as sewing, embroidery, and craft, intersected with school literacy practices. By taking an artifactual literacies approach, it was possible to understand literacy as being a materially situated cultural practice within homes. The aim of the presentation is to contribute to an understanding of how home literacy practices can be understood and materialised in contrast to literacy practices as manifested in schooling contexts.
