Tinyliteracies include affect, bodies, senses, and nature in literacy pedagogy

Päivi Jokinen’s doctoral study asks: 1) What is brought forth when thinking with literacies in the context of immigrant children’s education? 2) What do affect and embodiment produce for a rethinking of literacies in Finnish language?

Tinyliteracies emerge as a proposal to create space for literacy practice beyond the grand narratives of human supremacy or Finnish exceptionalism. Rather, tinyliteracies operate as embodied, multisensory, and affective.
