ACS SI : Scripted Reading

@ Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences

Henri Dunantlaan 2
9000 Gent
Belgium

////////////////////////////////

In the framework of the first ACS Summer Institute, hosted by the University of Ghent, Constant member Femke Snelting invites participants in a hands-on workshop to discover various Open Source tools that can be linked together to transform existing texts into new publications. Starting from a collection of publications made available through the Gutenberg Project, the workshop will generate scripted readings of literary classics.

(about the ACS Summer Institute on Critical Literacies)
The traditional notions of literacy have been challenged by developments such as digitization, globalization and multiculturalism. During the Summer Institute we will question and discuss these challenges from a critical perspective, working at the intersection of cultural studies and education. We will expand the notion of a singular literacy to multiliteracies and focus on what this shift implies for media literacy, digital literacy, (cross)cultural literacy, academic literacy, corporal literacy, etc.

The ACS Summer Institute is organized by the research group Culture & Education (C&E) that is part of the Department of Educational Studies of Ghent University .

The Association of Cultural Studies is the premiere international association of cultural studies and hosts the biennial Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference. Starting with Ghent in 2011, the ACS intends to host a biennial Summer Institute.
