UKLA 53rd International Conference 2017 - Glasgow
Language, Literacy and Class: Connections and Contradictions
Friday 30th June to Sunday 2nd July 2017
This year's theme invites colleagues to consider the connections and the contradictions between language, literacy and class. At a time when austerity is increasingly becoming one of the social norms and consequently widening divisions become more evident in society, this conference will explore the impact of these changes on literacy education - both the connections and the contradictions, the problems and the innovations.
Opening address: John Swinney MSP, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills for Scotland
- Graeme Logan (Friday am)
- Dr Vicky Duckworth (Friday pm)
- Prof. Shirley Brice-Heath (Saturday am)
- Author and Illustrator Panel (Saturday pm)
- Prof. Sue Ellis (Harold Rosen Lecture, Sunday am)
