About JoLLE

JoLLE is a peer-reviewed journal housed in the Language and Literacy Education department at The University of Georgia. JoLLE publishes two issues each year: one in the fall and one in the spring. Typically one issue is unthemed while one issue is aligned with the theme of that year’s JoLLE@UGA Conference (held each January or February). JoLLE understands “language and literacy” to include not only reading and writing, but other elements such as the social, cultural, and historical contexts of language and literacy learning and teaching; ongoing changes in communication tools and practices in the 21st century; and issues involving first and multiple language acquisition and use, regardless of semiotic systems involved. Submit all questions and inquiries about the journal and potential submissions to
