Research: Projects & Publications


Digital Literacy and Literary Learning

Current Projects: 

  • "Digital Teaching and Learning: Perspectives for English language Education?" (book project with Thorsten Merse), to be published in 2020, Narr Studienbücher
  • DigitaLiterature: Research on literature apps in English language education
    The research project 'DigitaLiterature' is an immediate response to the growing range of literary texts that come in a digital app format. It integrates conceptual and empirical research approaches in order to renegotiate and consolidate the changing nature and status of literature in English language education in view of current digital transformations. With its rigorous multi-disciplinary design (including the research trajectories of ELT pegagoy, digital literacies, literary studies and games theory), 'DigitaLiterature aims to:
    - model the ELT potential of literature apps according to features of functionality, interactivity, narrativitiy
       and learner/reader roles,
    - develop a tagged database corpus of available literature apps,
    - provide typologies of tasks and classroom procedures for using literature apps in concrete learning and teaching
       scenarios,
    - innovate aspects of cultural, global and literary learning vis-à-vis the use of digital literature,
    - conceptualize competences necessary for learners to engage with literature apps,
    - integrate digital literature into teacher education (e.g. in the context of the UNI-Klasse Moderne
       Fremdsprachen).
    'DigitaLiterature' is an ongoing research project launched in 2016. Continuous research activities include presentations at conferences and symposia worldwide (e.g. Germany, Greece, USA, Chile and Austria), as well as a range of publications such as 'DigitaLiterature: Potenziale mediengestützen Lernens im fremdsprachlichen Literaturunterricht' (2019; Lütge/Merse), 'Crossovers: Digitalization and Literature in Foreign Language Education' (2019; Lütge/Merse/Owczarek/Stannard), 'Digital, transcultural and global? Reconsidering the role of litrature in the EFL classroom' (2018; Lütge), and 'Digital narratives: Exploring new practices of reading and play' (2018; Lütge/Merse/Stannard).
