Reading & Writing is an inter-disciplinary and inter-professional scholarly journal that explores how literacy is defined, enacted and promoted in a range of institutional, socio-cultural and disciplinary contexts', particularly within Africa and other developing countries.

Editor-in-Chief: Agnes Chigona, Research Fellow - Faculty of Education, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa.

Society affiliation: Reading Association of South Africa (South Africa).

Announcement: 2016 special Issue ‘Imagination and literacy’ published.

The theme of this Special Issue is drawn from the 9th Pan-African/10th Literacy conference organised by the Reading Association of South Africa in September 2015. It arose from an awareness that the imagination as a meaning-making faculty receives remarkably little attention in literacy education, where standardised national curricula focus mainly on cognitive development. The articles focus on conceptualising imagination in literacy education across a range of contexts and levels, and suggest ways in which literacy education can be enriched. Read the issue here >>
