Literacies and Language Education: Research and Practice (formerly known as Working Papers in Language Education and Research) exists as a forum for the publication of all relevant research for current members of the English Language Institute at Kanda University of International Studies. The journal’s purpose is to highlight and showcase current research/practice being carried out in this institution. In addition to this research, there are occasionally special sections pertaining to specific themes, such as the recently published one entitled Teaching During a Pandemic, published in August 2020.

This journal was relaunched and renamed as this ELI-based journal in 2018.  This renewal marks the end of one journey but the start of another, which we hope to be long and fruitful.

For more information on the history of the paper and the decision behind its renaming, please see the Foreword to the 2018 issue.

The most current regular edition of the journal is the Autumn 2023 issue.
