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

Conference Strands


In this session, we encourage artistic and artifactual examples (e.g. paintings, digital media, photographs, interactive theater, music) that inspire participants to think differently and conceive of a better and more just future.

Inspire Conference Proposal Rubric


These workshop-style sessions are ideal outlets for creatives of all types, for example, leading participants through the production of a digital story.  Hands-on creative experiences are definitely encouraged.

Create Conference Proposal Rubric


These sessions are ideal for showcasing research, practitioner-focused studies, and discussions aimed at providing overarching and deeper insight.  Session leaders might lead an interactive panel and engage the audience in an extended conversation.

Engage Conference Proposal Rubric


This is where ideas that work are shared, where change is happening now, and where the futures we imagine are already being created.  In these sessions, we move from ideas to action, from experimentation to implementation.

For example, a practicing teacher might propose to engage participants in an innovative lesson that incorporates international children’s literature and involves music, movement, and storytelling, with an explicit focus on the importance of  literacy in becoming a global communicator who embraces languages and cultures.
