This collection offers insights into what a democratic vision of literacy looks like in practice. Building on the work of teacher and literacy scholar, Jay Robinson, author of Conversations on the Written Word: Essays on Language and Literacy (1990), the ten essays gathered here explore the vital relationships between literacy and society.  A new essay by Robinson frames the volume and offers readers a lively introduction to his work and its key terms.
