Call for Papers: Media Literacy in Foreign Language Education: Digital and Multimodal Perspectives

The conference will be held in Munich, Germany in March 2017. This conference is meant to engage with the epistemological and critical challenges involved in working with (digital) media in EFL/ESL/foreign language education. We hope to generate a lively discourse addressing various aspects of media literacy and language learning across diverse educational contexts.

With the ever-growing significance and diversification of media, there is a call to challenge, renegotiate, and expand on current discourses that have formulated media literacy as an integral objective in 21st century education. Foreign language education is increasingly responding to this development by updating and transforming EFL pedagogies. This conference will engage with the epistemological and critical foundations of media literacy in digital and multimodal manifestations, and how these then interact with foreign language education in practice across varied contexts.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

  • Catherine Beavis, Deakin University, Australia
  • Bill Cope, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
  • Mary Kalantzis, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
  • Gunther Kress, University College London, UK
