The idea of organizing an issue of Ilha do Desterro on Critical
Reading arose from discussions in the Reading courses given at our Graduate Program in English at UFSC. As a teacher I noticed that our classroom discussions on many topics of the course were always very rich and fruitful, but especially when master and/or doctoral students working in the area of critical discourse analysis brought their perspective to the discussions. I then decided to invite researchers from
the two areas of study—reading and critical discourse analysis—to contribute to an issue of our journal which would be entitled Critical Reading/Leitura Crítica. Not much was said to contributors about the issue, except the title. The purpose was to see how researchers in each area of study would perceive critical reading.
