The issues raised by Gunther Kress above are extremely pertinent to this issue of 3L, the Journal of Language Teaching, Linguistics and Literature which focuses on the theme of new literacies and the creation of new identities of literacy practices. All articles engage with novel ideas of teaching and learning reading and writing and the subsequent creation of new identities of literacy within the fields of Language, Linguistics and Literature in the Asia Pacific Region. Each demonstrates a deep cognisance of the ―larger-level social and cultural effects‖ that shape new spaces of literacy practises in varying contexts, as new insights are offered through discussions of pedagogical advancements, the employment of the performing arts, the incorporation of multicultural literary texts, the emergence and uses of new varieties of English, the new portals of communication generated in digital space as well as larger social domains such as the world of legal practice.
