Challenging How English Is Done: Engaging the Ethical and the Human in a Community Literacies Seminar

Susan Weinstein, Jeremy Cornelius, Shannon Kenny, Muriel Leung, Grace Shuyi Liew, Kieran L Lyons, Matthew Tougas, Sarah Webb


Eight English graduate students and a professor reflect on their semester-long exploration of community literacy studies. The students, some in an MFA Creative Writing program and some doing doctoral work in literature, rhetoric, or English Education, discuss how the community literacies lens unsettled their relationship to English Studies. 

Publication of the Community Literacy Journal is made possible through the generous support of the English Department and the Writing and Rhetoric Program at Florida International University. The CLJ is a journal of the Conference on Community Writing.
