We invite proposals for the 2015 NCTE Assembly for Research Midwinter Conference, to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from February 6-8, 2015.
Theme: Research at the intersections of race, language, and literacy in context
Using New Orleans as a point of departure, the theme for NCTEAR 2015 challenges us to think about how we make sense of language and literacy in local and geographic contexts (or space and place) and the ways in which race, and other identity markers, inform and shape them. We are interested in the project of research and specifically the scholarly examination of languages and literacies as they intersect with race, class, gender, sexuality, and citizenship status, among others. We are also interested in language and literacy scholarship that raises particular questions about methodology, epistemology, and the politics of research.
