Series/Report: ENGL 506 Writing Studies II, Prof. Cathy Prendergast: This course explored literacy and race: as mutually constituting concepts, as “problems” national discourse and scholarship alike seek to address, as markers of identity. Students jointly examined how relationships between race and literacy had been historically constructed. Of particular interest was how race is constructed as a category in and through research on literacy; in the scope of our reading students encountered the epistemological assumptions, methodological scrambling, and critical/political allegiances that had created the intertwining histories of literacy and race. The purpose of this course was explicitly to prepare students to do graduate level qualitative research. Assignments introduced students to forms of archival and ethnographic methods. Discussion of texts centered on methodology as much as content. Students were asked to comment frequently on the work of others in the course.
