abstract
In this innovative volume, a multidisciplinary team of both established and rising scholars challenges Appalachian sterotypes through an examination of language and rhetoric. Together, they offer a new perspective on Appalachia and its literacy that counteracts essentialist or class-based arguments about the region's people and examines past research in the light of researcher bias--Back Cover.
