Exquisite Attention: Introduction to the Special Issue of Language & Literacy
AbstractIt gives me great honour to welcome you to this special issue of Language & Literacy. In this issue you will find a range of thoughtful and provocative inquiries that reflect some of the diverse range of research in language and literacy education today. This issue was born of the recent marriage of the Language and Literacy Researchers of Canada (LLRC) and Language & Literacy: A Canadian ejournal. From this point forward these two organizations have made a commitment to support each other in their efforts to sustain critical conversations about language and literacy education and research.
