From the Editor: On Confrontations
Kathleen Blake Yancey

Resisting Age Bias in Digital Literacy Research
Lauren Marshall Bowen
Abstract: Through an eighty-one-year-old woman’s literacy narrative, I argue that literacy researchers should pay greater attention to elder writers, readers, and learners. Particularly as notions of literacy shift in digital times, the perspective of a lifespan can reveal otherwise hidden complexities of literacy, including the motivational impact of affective histories and embodied practices over time.

Successes, Victims, and Prodigies: “Master” and “Little” Cultural Narratives in the Literacy Narrative Genre
Kara Poe Alexander
Abstract: This article examines the “master” and “little” cultural narratives students perform in literacy narratives. Results show that students incorporate the literacy-equals-success master narrative most often, yet they also include in little narratives figures such as the hero, victim, and child prodigy. I consider how these findings can improve instruction on this topic and conclude with pedagogical recommendations.

Enacting and Transforming Local Language Policies
Christine M. Tardy
Abstract: Exploring language practices, beliefs, and management in a first-year writing program, this article considers the obstacles to and opportunities for transforming language policy and enacting a new multilingual norm in U.S. postsecondary writing instruction. It argues that the articulation of statements regarding language diversity, co-developed by teachers and program administrators, is a valuable step in viewing and constructing the classroom as a multilingual space.
