dc.description.abstract When one approaches contemporary literacy studies one might feel like Kafka tackling the bureaucratic structures of 20th century European civilization. Where should one start? How can one make sense of governmental interference in literacy and societal concerns that are manipulated by politicians in order to get more votes? This chapter proposes a synthesis of the mode of poststructuralism put forward by Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari (1986) in their Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature, so that it is applicable to the qualitative analysis of educational data contained in MLT (Multiple Literacies Theory). This approach to using Deleuze & Guattaris method for literary analysis links power with language and action. The language of teachers and students in the many folds of the educational system of liberal democracies, gives insights into the structures and the relationships that they are speaking about. These perceptions are manifold, and they may be described with reference to the desires and fears of the occupants of the system and a minor poststructural philosophy.
