Abstract


Eight English graduate students and a professor reflect on their semester-long exploration of community literacy studies. The students, some in an MFA Creative Writing program and some doing doctoral work in literature, rhetoric, or English Education, discuss how the community literacies lens unsettled their relationship to English Studies.
