Circles of Kinship, Friendship, Position, and Power: Examining the Community in Community-Based Literacy Research.
Moje, Elizabeth B.
Journal of Literacy Research, v32 n1 p77-112 Mar 2000
Explores issues surrounding community-based literacy research. Suggests that, although well intentioned, literacy researchers risk overdetermining, essentializing, and romanticizing what it means to engage in community-based literacy if they do not define and question what is meant by community. Examines various definitions of community and argues for concerted efforts to define and complicate perspectives on community in future research. (RS)
