2019 JoLLE@UGA Winter Conference

Saturday, Feb. 2–3, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Breaking Down Walls: Teaching and Learning Through and Across Boundaries

This annual conference is hosted by the Journal of Language and Literacy Education (JoLLE), a student-run, peer-reviewed, open-access journal housed in the Department of Language and Literacy Education at the University of Georgia.

This year, we invite teachers, researchers, and students to move beyond disciplinary, conceptual, theoretical, national, cultural, linguistic, social, racial, and gender boundaries, to communicate the embodiments of innovation, inclusion, affirmation, and “trans-”pedagogy.
