Welcome to the Martha L. King Center for
Language & Literacies at the Ohio State University

An Academic Research Center of Excellence in the Study of Language and Literacies.

The Martha King Center provides a forum for dialogue across diverse communities about the study of language and literacies. We are particularly committed to disrupting simplistic understandings of literacies. We accept the notion that being literate means one reads and writes both the word and the world. Join us for conversation on literacies at work across the life cycle and in various contexts.
