Language diversity and participation across generations and contexts

Generation Literacies international research network hosts a free 2-day research symposium devoted to language diversity and participation across generations and contexts.
  • December 10 and 11, 2021
  • Online (register your attendance here)
  • For researchers in education and language in social life
Language diversity is a feature of all contemporary differentiated societies around the globe. Due to migration, globalization and new communication technologies, individuals need to cope with and be able to use multiple languages in order to actively participate in the society. This symposium contextualizes the potential of multiliteracy throughout an individuals’ lifespan in multiple contexts (academia, education, home and workplace). For one, the symposium looks at the development and support of multiliteracy in the family, through the educational path, until integration in the work place. More specifically, the talks give insight into how families use digital media and how professionals in school deal and foster multiliteracy. Subsequently, as individuals get older, multilateral skills become an asset for professional success, also in academic settings.
