CLJ Awarded Best New Journal at MLA Conference

The Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) awarded the CLJ the Best New Journal Award at MLA Conference in December in San Francisco. The journal is published collaboratively between Michigan Technological University's Department of Humanities and the University of Arizona's Department of English.

In her remarks at the awards ceremony, Joycelyn Moody, Vice President, Council of Editors of Learned Journals and Editor of African American Review noted that judges "expressed admiration for the far reaching scope and visually pleasing design of Community Literacy Journal as well as its democratic approach to literacy studies. About its focus on the important but under-rated aspect of literacy studies, the judges found that Community Literacy Journal makes an original contribution using a compelling presentation."

Finally, the judges remarked CLJ’s fearless reach beyond “the usual boundaries of academia to topics of interest out in the wider world.”
