Language and Literacy Education
Doctor of Philosophy
The Department of Language and Literacy Education is a community of educators committed to social justice in scholarship, teaching, and service. We are interested in the many ways that humans make meaning through language and other symbolic resources. In our courses and our research, we see language and literacy as activities that make consensus possible, but that may also lead to inequity and injustice. In addition, conscious of ever-changing technologies for knowledge mobilization and the need for multiple and malleable literacies, we study and teach communication as a multimodal activity.
