Community Literacies as Shared Resources for Transformation, Paperback / softback Book

Community Literacies as Shared Resources for Transformation Paperback / softback

Edited by Joanne (University of Rochester, USA) Larson, George H. Moses

Part of the Expanding Literacies in Education series

Description

Through multiple narratives reflecting the complexity of participatory action research partnerships for social justice, this book sheds light on the dialogic spaces that intentionally support community literacies and rhetorical practices for inquiry and change.

Applying literacy as social practice, Larson and Moses tell a story of a unique collaboration between community members and university faculty and students, who together transformed an urban corner store into a cornerstone of the community.

Building on the emerging field of community literacies, the book captures the group's active work on the ground and, on another level, how transformation occurred in the dialogic spaces of the research team as it learned to embrace distributed expertise and multiple identities.
