The Republic of Letters
Working Class Writing and Local Publishing

Edited by Dave Morley and Ken Worpole

Paper $19.99    |    978-0-9819560-3-9    |    2010

The Republic of Letters examines how in recent years working—class people have begun to develop new forms of writing, new models of local, collective publishing, and alternative distribution networks—the elements of a movement that aims to "disestablish" literature, making writing a popular form of expression and not the preserve of a privileged metropolitan elite. This book explores the central issues in the field of cultural politics where the very words locality, literature, community, and culture are the sites of tension and conflict, but are also the sites of breakthroughs for new forms of communication.

Edited by Dave Morley and Ken Worpole
