The L2 Multimodal Symposium takes place online, April 21-22, 2023.

CERCLL is hosting the Second Language Multimodal Literacies Symposium (L2ML), an event that will bring together educators, practitioners, and researchers, who share common interests in exploring the role of multimodality in contexts of second or multiple language and culture learning. This free, two-day, virtual event will include a series of digital presentations and discussions, including three invited talks by experts in the fields of multimodal language and literacy education:
  • Denise Newfield (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa), Poetry, Performance and Making in Second Language Learning
  • Ana Oskoz (University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA), Second Language Digital Literacies in a Multilingual, Multimodal World
  • Jennifer Rowsell (University of Sheffield, UK), The Comfort of Screens: Living and Learning with Multiple Languages on Screens
 See the L2ML site for their abstracts and biographical statements.

The symposium will culminate in a panel discussion, where participants will consider future directions for multimodal scholarship and pedagogical practice in second language and multilingualism studies.
Registration is free, and opens in February.
