Her final On extends her section, Bodies,&dquo; &dquo;Technologies: Laboring of how it is within such discussion the laboring body by asking positioned wider as and systems imprisonment production. In addition to her the culture larger project of (re)envisioning complex of workers and the that their labor and literature responses elicits, Zandy also delineates what she believes makes a text In she so, working-class. doing takes on the task of some of the of what complicated outlining parameters an to these texts entail and what some of the forces approach studying might that influence a text be. is able to success- working-class might
