Alvarez, Steven – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
This article reports from instances of child language brokering among emergent bilingual youths and parents at a New York City after-school community literacy program composed largely of Mexican immigrant families. I argue that youth language brokers negotiated literacies with and for their parents in differing contexts, with different audiences,…

MacDonald, Michael T. – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
Literacy "sponsorship" in refugee communities is not without its risks and limitations. For potential sponsors, risks include the commodification of refugee voices, while limits include inaccurate generalizations of those being sponsored. This essay draws from a case study of refugee student discourse to discuss how a more explicit…

Douglas, Whitney – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
This article examines archival research as a generative community literacy practice. Through the example of a community-based project centered on archival research, I examine the increased possibility the archives hold as a site for rhetorical invention based on collaboration that includes contemporary community members "and" the…

Rosenberg, Lauren – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
Sustainability in community engagement projects depends on careful attention to the ways we navigate complex, often challenging relationships with our partners, our students, agencies, and the institutions in which we occupy multiple, sometimes competing roles. This article considers the difficulty inherent in developing and maintaining…

Murdock, Chelsea – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
This article considers fan fiction as (self-)publication, particularly noting the tensions between institutional notions of textual production within academia and how fan writing works against paradigms of publishing espoused in higher education. Such tensions are indicative of institutional pressures for "legitimate" publications.…

Monberg, Terese Guinsatao – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
In gathering and circulating histories, the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) enacts both community publishing and self-publishing models, as they have been defined in literacy studies. As a community institution situated within a larger constellation of counterpublics and dominant publics that have often overlooked, erased,…

Lesh, Charles – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
Working as an ethnographer with graffiti writers in Boston, the author has collected a range of materials, and experiences.

Curry, Michelle; Jacobi, Tobi – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
Entering jail is an assault on the senses. While volunteers and inmates might share visceral experiences of entering the institution, to enter "into" jail is not the same as being "in" jail. To be "in" is to be monitored--watched and listened to without exception or reprieve. To be in jail is to follow unwritten laws…

Mathieu, Paula – Community Literacy Journal, 2017
The unreliability of preserving writing in any form seems apt: it is a physical reminder of writing's shaky, uncertain power. Sometimes words can change the world, but more often, the stark realities of an unjust world can fail to bend to even the most beautifully chosen words. In the face of long odds, the impulse to write and share words, in any…

Mutnick, Deborah – Community Literacy Journal, 2016
Organizations like the John Reed Clubs and the WPA Federal Writers' Project, as well as publications like "The New Masses" can be seen as "literacy sponsors" of the U.S. literary left in the 1930s, particularly the young, the working class, and African American writers. The vibrant, inclusionary, activist, literary culture of…

Clifton, Jennifer; Loveridge, Jordan; Long, Elenore – Community Literacy Journal, 2016
It is not typically the bent of infrastructure to be continually responsive in a way that is expansive and inclusive; instead, for newcomers or those with alternative histories, aims, vision, values, and perspectives, the inertia of infrastructure is more likely to be experienced as infrastructural breakdowns. We ask: "What might wisdom look…

Feigenbaum, Paul – Community Literacy Journal, 2016
Emerging from the keynote address at the inaugural Conference on Community Writing, this snapshot examines how an engaged infrastructure for community writing might operate as a flow-cultivation milieu. Such a milieu would facilitate self-determination, which suggests that people do their most compelling, rewarding, and innovative work when they…

Cella, Laurie; Goldblatt, Eli; Johnson, Karen; Mathieu, Paula; Parks, Steve; Restaino, Jessica – Community Literacy Journal, 2016
The following essay is a collective reflection in which the authors revisit the themes they raise in the edited volume "Unsustainable," ask new questions, and suggest, again, that long-term sustainability might not be the most appropriate goal for every university-community partnership. Still, relationships, with all their variability,…
