LRDG: Literacies on the spot: roots, methods, and the future of New Literacy Studies
Date: 13 May 2014 Time: 1.00-2.00 pm
Venue: C89, County South, Lancaster University
At the next Literacy Research Discussion Group session (Tuesday 13 May) we will be speaking on:
Literacies on the spot: roots, methods, and the future of New Literacy Studies
This session aims at providing an opportunity for postgraduate students to ask questions and discuss current issues with the academic community working on literacies. The session has been organised by a group of PhD students working on literacies and sociolinguistics at Lancaster University. The group of PhD students have been meeting informally for a few months (we call it the "Literacy café") and have discussed key concepts, methods, and data analysis in their fields of study. This LRDG session arose from these dynamic and fruitful meetings.
PhD students have been invited to provide questions which will then be put to the literacy researchers during the session. Four main topics will be discussed: 1) the roots of the New Literacy Studies, 2) the methodologies and methods, 3) digital literacies, and 4) the future of the NLS. The session will combine open discussions with an interactive workshop about the future of the NLS. Postgraduate students, staff and everyone interested in literacy studies are very welcome to join this informal and friendly session. Please bring any questions you have about the field of literacy studies.
