The Conference will be held on 28-29 November 2017, at the “Filoxenia” Conference Center in Nicosia.

The Conference aspires to constitute a dynamic forum for the exchange of theoretical perspectives, research findings and knowledge on good practices related to how Literacy as a broad term, a practice and subject of education can be (re)defined in contemporary institutional/non-institutional and broader socio-political and historical contexts.

The Conference addresses teachers, undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students, academics, researchers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), as well as other stakeholder interested in the promotion of language and literacy, as well as literacy education.
