Kabler, Deanna C., "Writing with Incarcerated Students Towards Humanization: A Christian Critical Perspective" (2019). Masters Theses. 578.
This thesis centers on the intersections between critical pedagogy and writing instruction in a prison college program with the aim of humanization. A theoretical framework is constructed that relies on the pillars of tenets from Liberation theology, critical pedagogy, an anti-racist and multicultural praxis, and generative culture-making. Writing as the foundation of education is the medium for supporting a humanizing and liberatory education.
