Abstract

This article studies the notion of everyday citizenship, understood as episodes repeating themselves from ‘event’ to ‘practice’, by journeying into several sites of adult migrants’ literacy education in contemporary Finland in a storytelling format. Its primary focus lies on the politics of gender in literacy classrooms and the informal sites of literacy learning. It also seeks to develop a method of writing about social change in a politically loaded context which has caused the ‘field’ of literacy education to remain silent to wider society about its everyday practices.
