Call for Papers Special Issue

Everyday reading: explorations of literacy and oracy

Reading Aloud in Britain Today (RABiT) is a two-year AHRC-funded study of contemporary adult reading aloud practices. It aims to find out whether, what, when, where, how and why adults today may read out loud rather than in silence.

A symposium, ‘Everyday Reading: Explorations of Literacy and Oracy,’ was held in November 2018,  examining forms of reading aloud, ‘everyday’ reading, and relationships between literacy and oracy, in and out of the classroom. A number of the papers presented will become articles for a Special Issue of Changing English to be published in 2020.

We anticipate that there will be space for more papers to be part of this Special Issue. We welcome studies interrogating:

  • Forms of reading aloud across the various domains of ‘real life’
  • Uses of reading aloud in and as teaching
  • The breadth of what we might understand by ‘reading,’ including intersections with reciting, storytelling, singing, chanting or professions of faith
  • How we understand the relationships and boundaries between literacy and oracy

Submissions must be received by the end of July 2019.
