Suggesting that teaching in New Times requires that educators read and re/mediate the social relations, the cultural knowledges, and the relationships of power between adolescents and their social, biological, and semiotic universes, this collection of essays offers new ways of seeing and talking about adolescents and their literacies. Most of the essays were presented at the 1999 International Reading Association annual convention in San Diego, California, and all are reprinted from the February 2000 issue of the "Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy." The essays are all deliberate attempts to raise and "change the subject" of adolescent literacy by pushing the boundaries of the field. After an editorial by Allan Luke and John Elkins, essays in the book are: "Reinventing Adolescent Literacy for New Times: Perennial and Millennial Issues" (Elizabeth Birr Moje, Josephine Peyton Young, John E. Readence, and David W. Moore); "Teenagers in New Times: A New Literacy Studies Perspective" (James Paul Gee); "New Literacies in Teacher Education" (Carmen Luke); "Fandom and Critical Media Literacy" (Donna E. Alvermann and Margaret C. Hagood); "Critical Literacy in Australia: A Matter of Context and Standpoint" (Allan Luke); and "But Will It Work in the Heartland? A Response and Illustration" (Cynthia Lewis and Bettina Fabos). (RS)
