Worlds of Literacy 2.0

Date: 26 September 2014

Worlds of Literacy 2.0: Literacy Studies - looking into the future and celebrating the past, with David Barton and Mary Hamilton, took place on 26 September 2014 at the Midland Hotel, Morecambe.

This event celebrated the formal retirement of David Barton and Mary Hamilton, although they will keep a link with the university through a new 2 year ESRC grant (with Karin Tusting) on academics writing.

Members of the Literacy Research Centre discussed Literacy Studies (also known as New Literacy Studies) with a number of invited guests including plenary speaker Brian Street, Emeritus Professor of language in education at King's College London and Visiting Professor, University of Pennsylvania.

It is twenty five years since the Worlds of Literacy event was held at the Midland Hotel, Morecambe and we are delighted to be returning to the location of discussions where the original book "Worlds of Literacy" edited by Mary Hamilton, David Barton and Roz Ivanic, began to emerge.
