Description

What does it mean to belong to a community, especially in an urban setting, especially when one must struggle to survive, as well as promote and preserve one’s perspective? This project-based section of English 221 will collaborate with Groundcover News, Ann Arbor’s street newspaper, which has a mission of “Creating opportunity and a voice for low-income people while taking action to end homelessness and poverty.” More specifically, this class will produce content for a special edition of Groundcover News that focuses on the global network of street papers under the auspices of the International Network of Street Papers (INSP). It will also generate materials for an online exploration of global street papers, probably involving ArcGIS StoryMaps and WordPress. In a way, this class will operate as a spiritual sequel to certain sections of English 126 (Community-Engaged Writing).
