Critical Literacies for Writing in the Digital Age

January 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Through this talk I will explore the relations between language and power in and behind the variety of contemporary texts encountered in our daily lives. By introducing critical literacies and applying discourse analytical techniques to a range of texts, I will analyse the language and choices a writer makes in composing and organizing texts to represent the world and position the reader. I propose adopting a critical approach to question and challenge attitudes, values, and beliefs that lie beneath the surface of a text. In other words, developing critical awareness is the key to effective writing in the digital age.Discipline/Coordinating Entity: Writing Studio
