Call for papers & proposals:

Under the broad thematic umbrella of "Learning from Cultural Literacy", this interdisciplinary Symposium aims to share new research on Cultural Literacy and its application to different fields.

We are interested in experimental and traditional formats and welcome applications that touch on one or more of the following areas:

Pedagogical approaches to Cultural Literacy: how can we best teach/learn using Cultural Literacy as a pedagogical method, or how can we teach/learn about Cultural Literacy, as a subject matter?
What can translation teach us about Cultural Literacy?
Creative representations of Cultural Literacy.
Semiotics and cultural readability, different approaches to reading and interpreting the world.
Cultural Literacy and digital humanities.
Literature and Cultural Literacy: literary theory vs. literary practice.
Cultural Literacy and inter/transdisciplinarity.

The Symposium will include presentations, discussion papers, workshop sessions and roundtables on potential research areas for collaborative international projects through publications and grants, in Europe and abroad.


The symposium will include practice-based workshops, paper presentations, and roundtables. We will also have a forum for doctoral student presentations in the evenings.

Contributions will be in English. Papers will be a maximum of 10 minutes long. Proposals for workshops must be at least one hour long. The themes for the roundtable discussions will be determined by the Programme Committee, and announced in advance.

Please send a 200-300 word abstract of your proposed paper or workshop including the title of your proposal, your name, contact details, and affiliation to Ms Eloise Faichney at:
