Marginal Syllabus 2019-20 (December)—Miles Morales: Spider-Man and Reimagining the Canon for Racial Justice

December 03, 2019

As part of our close study of "Miles Morales: Spider-Man and Reimagining the Canon for Racial Justice," guest readers Latrice Ferguson and Christopher Rogers joined the Marginal Syllabus team to talk about the article with this month’s partner authors, Mario Worlds and Henry “Cody” Miller. Worlds’ and Millers’ writing surfaces the importance of rethinking text selection as a means of critiquing racial hierarchy in the curricular canon and dismantling white supremacy.


This discussion is part of LEARN 2019-20, a Marginal Syllabus co-developed with the National Writing Project (NWP) and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). Each month of the 2019-2020 academic year, we’ll collaboratively read and discuss an article, published in four different NCTE journals, that investigates the intersection of literacy and equity.
