Access back issues"Reading or listening to the stories refugees tell, and the ways in which they choose to tell them, can reveal how refugee students and writers critically resist and strategically accommodate dominant expectations of what it means to be a refugee, and more broadly, what it means to be sponsored. If paid close attention, these strategies can help sponsors reflect on the many assumptions of refugee experience that problematically inform the sponsorship, promotion, and support of literacy. Emissaries are not passive objects of either aid or literacy, but instead are active contributors to their own education through a diversity of rhetorical strategies as they communicate the stakes of their own literacy learning to a complex network of audiences." - Michael T. MacDonald, p.412
