The Literacy Research Association, a non-profit professional organization, is comprised of individuals who share an interest in advancing literacy theory, research, and practice. We are a community that engages in research and dialogue pertaining to literacy and related topics. We support the professional development of emerging and established scholars. We advocate research-informed improvements in education. We seek high-quality research and discussions of important theoretical or methodological issues. Only original work related to literacy not presented or published elsewhere may be proposed for the conference.
Interested parties are invited to submit proposals for presentation at the 65th Annual Conference. The Conference will be held at the Omni La Costa Resort, Carlsbad, California (http://www.lacosta.com/).

The theme of the 2015 Conference, “Literacy, Equity, and Imagination” focuses on the centrality of imagination and improvisation in literacy research and education as youth, educators, and researchers create new conditions for inclusion and equity across multiple communities, languages, forums, and expressive modes. Authors of proposals are encouraged to incorporate this theme into the rationale for their proposals and to seek connections to this overarching theme in their research questions, theoretical and methodological orientations, findings, and/or interpretive perspectives.
A Spanish version of the LRA 2015 Call for Proposals/Convocatoria de Propuestas is available. Please share this call with colleagues. We welcome proposals in Spanish, with an accompanying English title and abstract, to facilitate appropriate reviewing.
