Doing the Work:

Moving Past What We Already Know to Enact Change in Language and Literacy Education

The 2020 JoLLE Winter Conference


January 31 – February 2, 2020


Hosted by the Journal of Language and Literacy Education (JoLLE), this annual conference offers opportunities for students, scholars, and teachers to join together and learn about different educational challenges in grades Pre-K-16, as well as how to imagine radical alternatives in the field.

Justice work builds on the theories and successes of the past to push boundaries and reshape what is possible for the present and future. A critical part of moving forward is engaging in difficult and generative work alongside students and community members. We welcome proposals that explore what has been, what is now, and what is next, while describing this important work in diverse contexts and educational systems. We look forward to learning with you and discussing justice in language and literacy education.

Together, presenters and audience members can inquire into what invigorates and strengthens the trajectory of education.
