Upcoming web seminar


Please make plans to attend the upcoming web seminar presented by Dr. Candace Kuby, on Sunday, April 1, 7:00 p.m./EST-USA: Her talk, “Tensions from Analyzing Children’s Images of Racial Bus Segration: Searching for Tools” is a part of Global Conversations in Literacy Research (GCLR) 2011-2012 series of free web seminars (http://globalconversationsinliteracy.wordpress.com). On the night of Dr. Kuby’s web seminar, paste this URL into your browser within 60 minutes of its start:

Dr. Kuby is an assistant professor of early childhood education at the University of Missouri, Columbia, USA, with scholarly interests focused on early literacy, critical inquiry and multimodal literacies. Situated in data collected from a teacher/research study with 5 and 6 year-old children in a summer enrichment program in the South, this seminar addresses the tensions of analyzing multimodal images.  The focus of the web seminar is not so much the empirical study of the images, but reflectively on the tensions of analysis. 

All web seminars are free of charge, and certainly offer opportunity to engage in interesting conversations.
