JLR Special Issue Call “Critical Religious Literacy”

There is a growing need for literacy scholars to examine how prejudices impact literacy practices in K-12 contexts and beyond. More broadly, the role of religion, religious literacy, and critical religious literacy cannot be underscored enough in how it shapes public and private discourses. In this special issue, we call on literacy scholars to submit Insights essays and/or empirical research that speak to the role of religion in literacy education “from the heroic to the heinous” and everything in between from a broad range of perspectives (i.e., non-Western, Western, Indigenous) and contexts (private religious to public secular schools, as well as out-of-school contexts).
