The Converging Literacies Center

  1. 1. CLiC     &quot;Convergence occurs . . . through . . . social interactions. . . . Each of us constructs our own personal mythology from bits and fragments of information extracted from the media flow and transformed into resources through which we make sense of our everyday lives.&quot; (Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture , 2006)

  6. 8. Literacy Sponsors <ul><li>“ Sponsors…are any agents, local or distant, concrete or abstract, who enable, support, teach, model, as well as recruit, regulate, suppress or withhold literacy—and gain advantage by it in some way.” (Deborah Brandt, “Sponsors of Literacy”) </li></ul>
  7. 9. What the <bleep> is CLiC? an interdisciplinary site (virtual and physical) where educators work with students and scholars work with one another to reimagine literacy education in ways that embrace multiple, diverse literacy experiences and multiple modes of communication--from the written to the aural to the digital.
  8. 13. Our Models
  9. 14. Questions Informing/Informed By CLiC <ul><li>What are the material realities limiting and shaping our student’s acquisition of new literacies? </li></ul><ul><li>What do these realities have to teach us about literacy learning and literacy education? </li></ul><ul><li>How do digital literacies inform (and challenge) traditional ones? </li></ul><ul><li>When (why and how) are print-based, alphabetic texts absorbed by multimodal ones? </li></ul><ul><li>What can we learn from all this about writing and the teaching of writing? </li></ul>
  10. 15. <ul><li>“ </li></ul><ul><li>None of us can know everything; each of us knows something; and we can put the skills together if we pool our resources and combine our skills.” – Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture </li></ul>
