Su richiesta del prof. Vincenzo Schirripa, segnaliamo il Webinar “The future of the digital turn in the New Literacies Studies”, a doctoral online lecture by Professor Kathy Mills (Australian Catholic University).
Il Webinar, organizzato dal “Contemporary Humanism PhD” dell’Università LUMSA di Roma, si terrà il 22.02.2023 dalle ore 09.00 tramite Google Meet (https://meet.google.com/kfd-ermy-izy).
A decade ago, Professor Mills argued in Review of Educational Research that digital communication has transformed literacy practices and assumed immense importance in the functioning of workplace, recreational, and community contexts. Now, ten years on, Professor Mills directs our attention again to New Literacy Studies and anticipates the future of the digital turn in recent global shifts and the pandemic.
She engages with key debates: What are the boundaries of what counts as literacy? Is it helpful to speak to in-school and out-of-school literacies? Has there been a destabilising of traditional authority in online practices? Do new literacies of youth have any weight on schooled literacy achievement? Are there local or community literacy practices or global skills that are common across contexts? What will be the hybrid multimodal practices that students encounter in the future? Are children and youth making new media online or are the new media making them? Are new literacies merely exotic practices of the middle class? Recommendations are given to advance English and literacy curriculum and research in the 21st century.
Kathy Mills is Professor of Literacies and Digital Cultures at the Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education, Australian Catholic University, Brisbane. Her leading research examines gaps in current knowledge and educational applications of multimodality, multiliteracies, sensory literacies, and related theories of digital media practices in education. Professor Mills has published over 100 academic works, including award-winning books. A current Future Fellow of the Australian Research Council, she is researching sensory orchestration for multimodal literacy learning in primary education. She is also currently conducting an ARC Discovery grant, Coding Animated Narratives as Contemporary Multimodal Authorship in Schools, and is an international investigator examining critical digital literacies (Norway).
Professor Mills has won five ARC grants, four as the lead investigator, including three ARC Fellowships. Professor Mills regularly contributes to dialogue in news media, serving across national, international, and university research leadership roles, academic committees, associate editorships, and review boards.
