Bookings are now being taken for the Reading in a Digital Environment: Media Use, Functional Literacies and Future Challenges for Universities International Conference 2019.
The conference will take place on November 8th-9th at Universität Regensburg, Germany.
“Reading goes beyond a single literacy. Reading processes serve different functions and have radically different goals. These processes thus require different literacies and competencies. This picture – while far from being known to a wider public – is further complicated by the continuous development of new reading media and forms of use in a digital environment. The ability to process information, meanwhile, is at the core of individual scholarly and academic success. Very few studies have hitherto addressed this central concern for the university of the future. This international conference attempts to fill this gap – scholars and practitioners from all relevant disciplines are invited to contribute.”
Tickets for the conference cost €75. There is no registration fee for students, and free childcare is available. Please visit the conference registration page for more information and to see the conference programme.
There is currently a call for Posters. Abstracts to be submitted by Friday October 11th.
