JoLLE@UGA 2015 Winter Conference Call for Proposals


CALL FOR CONFERENCE PROPOSALS &/or
MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS

This year’s theme for the JoLLE@UGA Winter Conference and subsequent spring journal issue will be “Embodied and/or Participatory Literacies: Inspire, Engage, Create, Transform.” This theme welcomes wide-ranging notions of how one’s
understandings of language and literacy includes students’ and teachers’ construction and participation in the world through their bodies. The JoLLE@UGA Winter Conference has established itself as an inventive and creative place for students,
teachers, and researchers to bridge theory, research, and practice in hands-on and action-oriented ways.

The following questions below are meant to help you think about what embodied and participatory literacies might mean, and give ideas for submitting a conference proposal or manuscript for our themed spring issue. Note: You do not need to submit a
manuscript to submit a conference proposal, or vice a versa, to be considered for either, although you may.

 What is the role of the body in literacy?
 What practices promote participatory models of learning in literacy classrooms?
 What forms of embodied and disembodied learning take place in the literacy classroom?
 How are performative and participatory literacies essential to functioning in the 21st century?
 How are bodily-kinesthetic modes of learning being utilized and practiced in the literacy classroom?
 How are bodies being used as tools rather than obstacles of reading, writing, and language use?
 How are non-traditional literacy practices such as dance, art, drama, etc. being used in the literacy classroom?
 How might embodied and participatory practices be sites of resistance and social justice?
 How are embodied and participatory literacy practice gendered?
 How are 21st century literacies impacting the way students participate within the world?
 How can classroom spaces be organized so as to support participatory and embodied learning?
 In what ways are teachers and students part of “participatory cultures”?
 How do children’s and young adult literature demonstrate embodiment and participatory literacies?
 How do embodied and participatory notions of language and literacy combat the Cartesian mind/body dichotomy?
 What is the role of out-of-school experiences and how are they used to engage students’ participation in literacy practices?
 How do schools support, position, and/or control the use of bodies in the teaching of literacy, reading, writing, and language?
 How are students and teachers using their bodies to interact with the social, cultural, and historical worlds around them?
