Slipping Pages through Razor Wire: Literacy Action Projects in Jail
Jacobi, Tobi
Community Literacy Journal, v2 n2 p67-86 Spr 2008
This essay explores the intersection between writing studies and civic engagement through the action projects developed in E465: Prison Literature and Writing. Such literacy activism creates immediate opportunities for advanced undergraduates to more fully understand the work of literacy in contested spaces like jail and extends a call to action for writing teachers to acknowledge the possibility of community-based writing collaborations. (Contains 5 notes.)
