A Critical Untangling of Adolescents' Literacy Practices and Popular Culture—A Global Conversations in Literacy Research Webinar

March 6, 2016

Dr. Donna E. Alvermann will address how popular culture is not a discourse distinct from other discourses, including adolescents' literacy practices as part of the Global Conversations in Literacy Research 2015-2016 series. Dr. Alvermann is the University of Georgia Appointed Distinguished Research Professor of Language and Literacy Education whose research focuses on young people's digital literacies and use of popular media.

The National Writing Project is proud to support Global Conversations in Literacy Research (GCLR), a series of interactive web seminars that feature cutting-edge literacy research conducted by international literacy researchers. GCLR is grounded in critical literacy, and, like the National Writing Project, sees as its mission to use new and emerging technologies to connect global audiences in an exchange of ideas on literacy theory, research, and practice through free and open access to webinars.
