Pints with Professors - Prof Jessica Pisano and DeWayne Barton

The first Tuesday of the month is upon us again, and you are invited to grab a beverage and continue your education here at Habitat Tavern and Commons. Join us December 3rd at 7pm to hear UNC Asheville Professor of English Jessica Pisano and DeWayne Barton of Hood Huggers International speak on writing for the purpose of impacting our Asheville community for the better.

"Write Here: Place-Based Writing and Community Activism"

Jessica Pisano says, "When I started developing my “[De]constructing Asheville” first-year writing class two years ago, I knew I wanted to get my first-year students out into the community, to let them to explore this new city they would learn to call “home,” questioning their perspectives and assumptions about Asheville, researching and writing to uncover more and more. It wasn’t until I began collaborating with local artist and activist DeWayne Barton, however, that my students moved beyond simply writing about the community to writing for and with the community. Now my students have the opportunity and the responsibility of knowing that their words matter, that they have the power to reach and impact real people in our community."
