Abstract:

The concept of "communities of practice" (Lave and Wenger 1991, Wenger 
1998) has become influential in education, management, and social sciences 
in recent years. This volume emphasizes the significance of language, 
power, and social context in understanding how communities of practice 
work. Domains of empirical research reported include schools, police 
stations, adult basic education, higher education and multilingual 
settings. The relationship between communities of practice and literacy 
studies, critical language studies, the ethnography of communication, 
socio-cultural activity theory, and sociological theories of risk is also 
evaluated.
