Introduction The charge we were given in writing this chapter was to explore the relationship between postmodern approaches to research and literacy studies. In doing so, we focused on two simple yet compelling questions that temporally located our inquiry in the present moment, while also allowing us to recall the historical implications of postmodernism on knowledge about literacy: What does it mean to conduct literacy research today? And, what are we doing when we say that we are studying literacy?.
