Jennifer Stone, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison, specializes in sociocultural and critical approaches to literacy education. Her research focuses on young people’s out-of-school literacy resources (including digital literacies, popular culture, and linguistic practices), and the implications of such resources for literacy teaching and learning. Stone’s recent publications include “Popular websites in adolescents’ out-of-school lives: Critical lessons on literacy” in A New Literacies Sampler, edited by Knobel & Lankshear (2007); “Textual borderlands: Students’ recontextualizations in writing children’s books” in Language Arts (2005); “Textual tactics of identification” in Anthropology & Education Quarterly (2004, co-authored with M. L. Gomez & N. Hobbel); and “Unpacking the social imaginary of literacy education: A case study” in English Education (2003).
