Critical Literacy: Theories and Practices

The journal ‘Critical Literacy: Theories and Practices’ publishes articles related to theoretical discussions and practices of critical literacy based on a wide range of perspectives and disciplines. We propose a definition of critical literacy as an educational practice that emphasizes the connections between language, knowledge, power and subjectivities.
