50th UKLA International Conference

50 Years of Literacy: Continuity and Change

The 50th Annual United Kingdom Literacy Association International Conference takes place in the University of Sussex from Friday 4th - Sunday 6th July 2014.

The 50th UKLA International conference will be a special occasion for the United Kingdom Literacy Association and all its members. UKLA will be celebrating 50 years of the Association’s work in literacy education. It will be an occasion to look back but, very importantly, to look ahead to the future. The general theme of the conference provides opportunities to explore and critique the development of literacy teaching over the last 50 years. However, contributors are also invited to bring news of research, scholarship, teaching and innovation in literacy education that will inspire delegates to consider the next 50 years.

Proposals can be submitted on-line here: http://www.ukla.org/conferences/apply. The deadline is 2nd December 2013. For further information please visit: http://www.ukla.org/conferences/event/ukla_50th_international_conference/
