Undoing the Digital challenges common ways of understanding digital technology and its relationships to literacy and literacy education. The book explores how a socio-material perspective can provide an alternative analysis of literacy in the context of digital communication. 

Introducing a series of conceptual tools and examples, the book examines digital communication as an emergent interweaving of social, material and semiotic resources. The perspective invites literacy research to focus more on the relations associated with the process of making meaning: the new collaborations, stories, conceptualisations, directions, and intentions that take shape in, and also help to shape the contemporary mediascape. 

Drawing on studies conducted in a variety of contexts, this book is key reading for all advanced students and researchers of literacy and digital media within Education, Applied Linguistics and Media/Communication Studies.
