Abstract

This study aims to analyze the transnational activities of Community-Driven Literacy Groups in Makassar. This research was conducted in the city of Makassar in 2019. This study was qualitative. Data collection techniques used in this study were in-depth interviews, observation and document review. The informants in this study were activists from 5 literacy communities in Makassar, namely Kedai Buku Jenny, Kampung Buku, Rumata 'Art Space, Philosophia, and Kata Kerja. This study found that Community-Driven Literacy Groups in Makassar already have an international network. The international network was built through local community initiatives. Transnational relations can be developed through narratives formulated by local literacy groups and then affirmed by international partners as their collective identity.
