Literacy for/and Social Justice: Inspire, Engage, Create, Transform
February 14-15, 2014
Proposals are due by October 1, 2013.
As educators, students, researchers, community members, and others expand notions of what “literacy” means, they must also increase efforts to ensure that literacy opportunities are equitable for and welcoming to all. Our theme this year, “Literacy and/for Social Justice: Inspire, Engage, Create, Transform” emphasizes the role of literacy, both as a means of incorporating social justice into curriculum and as a method for performing socially just practices. This theme welcomes wide-ranging notions of how one might define or practice literacy, and of how one’s understandings of literacy might include or address issues of social justice. The JoLLE@UGA Conference established itself last year as being action-oriented, bridging theory and practice, informed by research and practice, and also inventive and creative.
