The International congress on literacies for the xxi century, ICCL2021, will take place in a virtual format the 15th and 16th July 2021, at the Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre, Portugal
It intends to promote literacy in different areas of knowledge as part of the right to education, as well as a foundation for individuals’ empowerment and inclusive development in low density and cross-borders territories, allowing a greater literacy of these populations, thus contributing to a positive differentiation of these territories.
The ICCL2021 will provide an opportunity to rethink the fundamental importance of literacy as a booster to the development and integration of these populations in the challenges of the coming decades.
Several themes will be addressed, namely: digital, financial, environmental, quantitative, scientific, and emotional literacies, as well as literacy in the fields of health and management, STEM, reading and libraries, cinema, media, education, and arts, but not limited to.
The meeting will provide a forum for discussion and debate of ideas with interest to the scientific community in general. With this meeting new scientific collaborations among colleagues, namely new collaborations in master’s and PhD projects are expected.
The event is open to the entire scientific community (with or without communication/poster).
Abstract submission deadline: April 15th, 2021
Early bird registration: 60€ (for an organise/proponent of a symposium it will be 30€. A symposium will have only 4 participants: the organiser/proponent plus 3 more speakers)
