Call for Applications: The ReDMIL 2024 Doctoral Summer School

Charting the (Dis) continuities in Literacies

The ReDMIL 2024 doctoral summer school aims at contributing to the convergence between digital, media and information literacy research by bringing together researchers from all three communities, to foster the scientific debate and explore connections between them.  

The summer school is an international training program that will alternate between framing presentations by senior researchers and the in-depth discussion of emerging research by participating PhD students. 

It is organized on September 9th-12th, 2024 by the Groupe de Recherche en Médiation des Savoirs (Knowledge Mediation Research Group) at the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, in partnership with the Canada Research Chair in Media Education and Human Rights (Université TELUQ). 

The goal of this summer school is to allow PhD students engaged in the field of digital literacy, media literacy or information literacy:  

  • to benefit from the expertise of renowned researchers in their field, though theoretical and methodological presentations;  
  • to present their own research to an audience composed of these experts, as well as other PhD students and researchers;  
  • to work collectively to the enhancement of their research work with other participants;  
  • to improve their knowledge of the research undertaken by their peers.
