Overview

In Arts, Media, and Justice, the aesthetic contours of literacies and communication are explored through a collection of chapters authored by educators, emerging and established researchers, youth researchers, and teaching artists whose lives intersect with those of young people inside and outside of formal institutional settings. At the heart of the varied research and curricular projects - ranging from writing workshops and photography walks to a theater elective at an alternative to incarceration program - represented in this volume is the pursuit of play, imagination, multimodal expression. The authors share their experiences working with court-involved youth to explore issues related to justice, community, identity, and representation through engagement with multiple media and modes - including photography, theater, writing, painting, and video.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«Through a meshing of public and private worlds, from writing Fanfiction to the improvisation of everyday life events, the work presented in this volume displays a range, and seemingly indefatigable examples of engaging youth in meaningful dis-course about the world around them. The performances use the lan-guages of joy, anger, frustration, vulnerability, and hope to confront stereotypes about people marginalized in American society.» (Yolanda Sealey- Ruiz - Teachers College, Columbia University)
«In Arts, Media, and Justice: Multimodal Explorations with Youth, Vasudevan, DeJaynes, and their contributors in effect take as their project to teach us to see more clearly, making visible youthful populations that customarily reside for most people either in the institutional shadows of group homes, the court system, and detention centers, or in the stark light shone by media to feed a societal fascination with youthful deviance.» (Glynda Hull - University of California, Berkeley)
