Spring 2017 Call for Manuscripts
Teachers and researchers in the field of language and literacy education increasingly face standardizing forces. What do we do when these pressures go against our better understanding, our unique identities, and the particular makeup of our learning contexts? We invite artists, gamers, remixers, techies, and fandoms. We invite all who experiment with the intertwining of identities, and all who refuse to be labeled, to share and study how to exert agency within highly constrained contexts–or, in other words, how to move out of the box and into the margins. We invite national and international scholars with ranging research interests in language and literacy education to submit manuscripts about how language and literacies help students and educators explore opportunities to remake, refocus, and revolutionize the system to fit ourselves.
JoLLE is currently accepting submissions for the spring 2017 themed issue. Manuscripts must follow the appropriate submission guidelines. All submissions are due by 11:59 PM on February 28, 2017. See manuscript guidelines here.
