Call for Papers: 3rd International Conference: “Literacy and Contemporary Society: Identities, Texts, Institutions”, Nicosia, Cyprus, October 11-12 2019

The Cyprus Pedagogical Institute, Ministry of Education and Culture, Cyprus, in collaboration with the University of Cyprus, announces the 3rd International Conference on Literacy and Contemporary Society, titled “Identities, Texts, Institutions”. The conference will be held on 11-12 October 2019 at the “Filoxenia” Conference Center in Nicosia.

The 3rd International Conference on Literacy and Contemporary Society focuses on the complex interrelation between identities, texts and institutions. In the era of multimodality and multilingualism, literacy practices have at their epicenter polymorphic texts that derive from different communities of practice and are the results of representational and enacting processes of either individuals or groups. At the same time, in institutions like education, texts and literacy are approached from a more top-down perspective, which focuses on promoting and assessing particular bits of knowledge, skills, and competencies. The conference aims to shed light on these issues and interactions and to provide a dynamic platform where different aspects of identities, texts and institutions will be discussed.

To participate in the conference either with an oral paper presentation, a symposium or a workshop, authors may submit a proposal until no later than June 21, 2019, by filling in their details in the relevant form which can be found on the conference website ( Abstracts must be sent to the email address:
