"As friends, colleagues,and co-researchers,we have been in conversation for the past several years about issues for which we share a deep commitment: the literate lives of court-involved youth; the nature and experience of teaching and learning across settings; the promise of critical and social issue media as sites of pedagogy; engaging in research that creates opportunities to do work in the world. During this colloquium, we plan to share our overlapping stories of engaging in multimodal, participatory work with young people, with each other, and with our students and colleagues toward the purposes of researching, teaching, learning, and communicating 'critically, aesthetically, lovingly, and agentively' (Hull, 2003, p. 2300."

Lalitha is co--editor of Arts, Media, and Justice: Multimodal Explorations with Youth (Peter Lang, forthcoming, Summer 2013).
