Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

Weltkongress 2009 in Mailand auf englisch.
Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Meldungen und grüßen herzlich
Heike vom Orde
World Library and Information Congress:
75^th IFLA General Conference and Council
"Libraries Create Futures: Building on Cultural Heritage"
August 23-27, Milan, Italy
**Call for Papers**
**Libraries Promoting Twenty-First Century Literacies**
The Literacy and Reading Section and the Information Literacy Section
are seeking proposals for a program to be held at the IFLA Congress in
Milan in August, 2009.
It is no longer enough to be simply print literate in the twenty-first
century. The complex world in which we now live requires fluency in
many literacies. Through formal presentations and group discussions,
this program will explore the ways in which libraries can actively
promote multiple literacies.
The program will feature up to six invited papers, each focusing on a
different twenty-first century literacy. We are looking for papers on
basic print literacy (combating illiteracy), fluent print literacy
(combating aliteracy), and information literacy. We also invite paper
presentations that feature other literacies. Possibilities include
multicultural literacy, visual literacy, media literacy, civic
literacy, or economic literacy, to name a few.
Papers chosen for presentation will avoid repetitive definitions of
literacy in general and focus instead on the particular twenty-first
century literacy being addressed. They will be specific about how
libraries can promote that literacy. They will be grounded in theory,
research, and/or practical applications.
Proposals should provide the following information:
The particular literacy addressed in the paper
Name and institution of speaker(s)
Abstract of paper (500 words)
Brief biographical information
Proposals should be sent to Alison Ernst (_aernst@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx or
_Alison.Ernst@xxxxxxxxxxxx ) by November 15, 2008. Please indicate
"IFLA proposal" in the subject line. Finalists will be notified by
January 15, 2009, and will be expected to submit final versions of
their papers in one of the official IFLA languages by May 15, 2009.
Presenters will have fifteen minutes to present their papers at the
program, and time will be allowed for a moderated discussion by attendees.
For more information, please contact Sylvia Chevillotte, Chair of
Information Literacy Section, at _Sylvie.chevillotte@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
or Ivanka Stricevic (Chair of Literacy and Reading Section) at
Please note that it is the speakers' responsibility to find funding
for their participation.
