Popular Literacy and the Resources of Print Culture: The South African Committee for Higher Education
Trimbur, John
College Composition and Communication, v61 n1 p85-108 Sep 2009
This article examines how the South African Committee for Higher Education used the resources of print culture to design forms of writing and delivery systems that provided students and post-literate adults in the anti-apartheid struggle of the 1980s with the means to recognize and represent themselves as rhetorical agents, for whom reading and writing were tools of deliberation and social action to participate in building a non-racial political future. (Contains 3 figures and 13 notes.)
