English alumnus Charles Lesh (PhD ’16) Publishes The Writing of Where

In The Writing of Where, Charles Lesh examines how graffiti writers in Boston remake various spaces within and across the city. The spaces readers will encounter in this book are not just meaningful venues of writing, but also outcomes of writing itself: social spaces not just where writing happens but created because writing happens. Lesh contends that these graffiti spaces reinvent the writing landscape of the city and its public relationship with writing.

Charles N. Lesh is assistant professor of English at Auburn University. His work has appeared in such journals as Composition Studies, Community Literacy Journal, Reflections, and College English, among others.
