Language and Literacy in Uganda

Towards a Sustainable Reading Culture

edited by Kate Parry

Uganda's linguistic situation is complex. These papers from two conferences at Makerere University present a coherent and current picture. The book is divided into five parts: an overview of language and literacy issues in both Ugandan and international contexts; the issue of language for national communication; the role of local language in the education system; national policies and practices in teaching literacy and literature; and ways of encouraging a reading culture in Uganda.
