International conference "Media Literacy in Foreign Language Education: Digital and Multimodal Perspectives"

The conference took place at the LMU Munich on March 12-15th, 2017. This conference responded to the ever-growing significance of media where there is a call to challenge, negotiate and expand on current discourses that have formulated media literacy as an integral objective in 21st century foreign language education. Next to more than 350 international guests and 90 conference speakers, Prof. Dr. Christiane Lütge welcomed our highly distinguished plenary speakers:

  • Prof. Dr. Bill Cope, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, USA
    "Language Learning and Assessment in the Era of Technology-Mediated Learning"
  • Prof. Dr. Gunther Kress, University College London, UK
    "Speech and writing in an era of social and semiotic provisionality: multimodal representation and the growing dominance of the screen"
  • Prof. Dr. Catherine Beavis, Deakin University, Australia
    "Digital Literacies, Digital Games: Language, Learning and Play "
  • Prof. Dr. Mary Kalantzis, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, USA
