Corbett, Michael; Donehower, Kim – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2017
In this article we analyze the emergence of the field of rural literacies.

Our insistence on the importance of context and place reveals multiple rural…

Waller, Rachael; Barrentine, Shelby J. – Journal of Research in Rural Education, 2015
