Reading conference "Cultures of reading and writing. Connecting literacy practices inside and outside of kindergarten and school" will take place in Innsbruck at the beginning of October 2011. Keynote-speakers are Jennifer Rowsell (Canada Research Chair in Multiliteracies, Brock University), Gunther Kress (Professor of Semiotics and Pedagogy, Institute of Education, University of London) and Franz Billmayer (Professor of Arts Education, Mozarteum, Salzburg).
Apart from introducing ALA to a greater public and recruiting new members, our aim is to introduce the concepts of New Literacy Studies and Multimodality in Austrian literacy research and work in educational contexts.
