As digital technologies continue to radically change the social acts of meaning making in which we engage, boundaries once taken for granted between semiotic consumption and production and among various modes and medialities have begun to break down, pushing applied linguists and scholars of language pedagogy to reconsider conceptualizations of literacy in teaching and learning language and cultures. If new literacies afford new forms of meaning making, then they also demand new understandings of the ways in which we acquire and evaluate knowledge and communicate.

This symposium will explore the wide array of practices captured by the concept of digital literacies from social networking to gaming to fan fiction to micropublishing as they relate to particular circumstances of learning and living in a second or additional language and culture.

In addition to the keynote talk by Richard Kern and a series of talks and panel discussions held on the University of Arizona campus on October 11, 2014, this event will include online poster presentations with opportunities for both synchronous and asynchronous exchange.

We are currently seeking submissions for the digital poster session. Since poster presentations will be online, presenters need not be physically present. Presentations should be in slideshow or similar online format, possibly with voiceover annotation, and should take approximately 15-20 minutes for individuals to view. Posters will be hosted online during the week of October 6, 2014, to be viewed by all registered conference attendees (registration will be free). Asynchronous fora (discussion threads) will allow for question-and-answer for the entire week, and presenters may conduct synchronous chat at designated times as well. Details on formatting, hosting, and submitting final posters will be provided to accepted presenters. Research studies, theoretical discussions, and exemplary practices are all equally welcome. Topics might include, but are not limited to, digital literacies…
