Writing for Love and Money: How Migration Drives Literacy Learning in Transnational Families. (Oxford University Press, 2019)

This book, drawing from qualitative research in Brazil, Latvia, and the United States, forwards an asset-based account of migrant literacy by showing how families separated across borders learn new ways of writing to keep in touch.


Paz: Escribiendo Un Corazón Comùn, edited by Jhoana Patiño Lopez and Kate Vieira. (Manizales: Colombia: Ojo con la Gota de TINta Press, 2019). Funded by Fulbright, ICETEX, and a Baldwin Seed Grant, this collaborative community-engaged project draws from the work of 14 co-authors (including high school students, teachers, writers, and artists) who are committed to using writing to build peace in Colombia’s post-peace-accord era. The result is a “pedagogical kit,” including an edited collection and a writing-for-peace board game our team developed for use in communities and schools.
