How do people use literacy to remain close when they are far? And what new kinds of literacy learning result from long-distance separation? Literacy Learning in Migrants’ Homelands answers these questions through a tri-continental study of transnational families and their use of letters, phones, and computers to communicate across borders. Based on research in Brazil, Latvia, and the U.S., early results show that emigration can actually promote literacy learning among separated families, as they develop new literacy skills to sustain relationships. When people move across borders, so too do literacy technologies and knowledge.
