Description

Made available via the Publications (Legal Deposit) Act 2004 (NT).; In 2017 the Australian Council for Adult Literacy celebrates 40 years of actively promoting language, literacy, numeracy, and communication provision and research. This Conference offers an opportunity to also travel back past these forty years of official activism to consider how metaphors of trade, neighbourly contact and mobility shape understandings of adult basic education, foundation skills and the everyday ‘literacies’ of workplaces, academic institutions and communities.

Notes

Only papers received prior to the start of the conference were included in these proceedings. 13th – 14th September, 2017 Darwin Convention Centre, Darwin, NT
