"Crafting Is a Luxury that Many Women Cannot Afford": Campus Knitivism and an Aesthetic of Civic Engagement
Springgay, Stephanie; Hatza, Nikki; O'Donald, Sarah
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v24 n5 p607-613 2011
This paper examines the activities of the "Penn State Knitivism Club," in which small groups of students come together to knit in public spaces, as a form of creative resistance. In framing campus knitivism as "an aesthetic of civic engagement" we consider the complexities of becoming resistant and the implications of those complexities for relational theories of curriculum and pedagogy. (Contains 1 figure and 1 note.)
