How can literary theory inform community based learning/service
learning? Or vice versa, how does community service transform our

narratives, reflections, position papers] for a edited volume on the
interrelationship between literary studies and community-based
learning. We would like to include examples of classroom projects,
reflections on practice, theoretical pieces and close readings.
