English Studies As An Active Participant In The Creation

In some senses, the residents began to think of the book less as a literal representation of their community and more as a document that expressed one particular working-through of the issue, a discussion piece for use in their neighborhood. This was evident in their decision not to include more demographic or research materials in the book. In part, residents felt that the editorial changes to their interviews cumulatively expressed their worldview. In part, they felt that the university courses were providing this perspective for students. In this way, the second edition resulted in academic and vernacular cultures being metaphorically conjoined to produce a dialogue about the nature of language and community, as well as about the intersection of race and class. Therefore, with the second edition of the book, although the Glassville neighborhood association did not have a perfect publication that expressed a Utopian vision of their community, they did have a publication that they felt comfortable sharing at community events, giving to new residents, and using to advocate for community rights.

I do not want to leave the impression that everything was permanently solved. That is not how collaboration works. Despite the attempt to reframe the discussion of race, the second edition failed to represent the full diversity of the community: new immigrants, as well as some long-time residents of the community, are not represented in the book. (As the second edition was heading to press, a resident in the community refused to allow a group photo featuring her grandmother to appear in the book because her family had not been interviewed. This act rekindled old feuds.) Although it is true that the book was used in the composition program for two years, neither Glassville Memories nor any other New City Community Press publication is currently being used in Temple University's first-year curriculum. Finally, personal divisions still exist among between faculty, community, and program leaders about the history of the project and its value. Despite such moments, what has succeeded, however, is the strategic space supporting the goals of community publishing? Since the production of Glassville Memories, the Press has worked collaboratively to publish oral histories of Mexican farm workers, the photography and writing of displaced union members, the poetry of urban school children, and community dialogues on slavery/freedom. In each case, these publications have been collaborative produced and designed by teams of community, university, and student participants. Each of these books found a home both within the participating community as well as within literature and composition classes; their adoption across the curriculum (not just for first-year writing) can serve as a sign of the long-term success of such projects at drawing together opposing aspects of an English studies department in support of community-based organizing.

In addition, a collaboratively developed curriculum for each of these community publications has enabled them to be integrated into high schools, community organizations, and government agencies in the immediate local context of their production, as well as literally across the country and internationally. In that way, the crisis of Glassville has created a strategic intervention into the work of the department and college, which has enabled a vision of English studies as an active participant in the creation of not only a community-based literature, but also a community-based curriculum at all levels of literary and composition instruction nationwide.
