Writing for Love and Money

Kate Vieira

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 tells of writing’s enduring entanglement in love and money across selected historical and contemporary periods and cultures. It argues that writing for love and money is not new. It suggests that taking both a sociohistorical and ethnographic perspective on migration-driven literacy learning allows one to explore which legacies of writing for love and money people activate or discard given their particular historical moments, their particular geo-political contexts, and their particular relationships, goals, and lives. Such an exploration can be undertaken through the kind of comparative, transnational analysis that the subsequent chapter outlines.
