Dissertation: College Writing, Capitalism, and the Common Good: Adult Students Imagining Civil Capital

A practitioner inquiry into an adult undergraduate Grant Writing course, I studied the literacy trajectories of my students as they carried their grant writing skills into their communities. The classroom-based study was contextualized by a discourse analysis of US workforce education policy and the marketing materials of the college's adult degree program.
