Literacy Research in the 21st Century: LSIA Visiting Lecture

Mills, Kathy A. (2016) Literacy Research in the 21st Century: LSIA Visiting Lecture. In Learning Sciences Institute Australia Invited Lecture, 11 May 2016, Learning Sciences Institute Australia, Brisbane, Qld.


In this visiting lecture, Associate Professor Kathy Mills presented her recent international research contributions to literacy studies and digital culture in education: multimodal literacies and Indigenous epistemology, the digital turn in socio-cultural literacy studies, power and socio-spatial literacies in classrooms, and key principles of multimodal semiotics in children’s learning (including transmediation). The session included Kathy Mills’ original theory of sensory literacies from her highly acclaimed new book “Literacy Theories for the Digital Age”, which foregrounds the forgotten embodied dimensions of literacy practices and visual dominance in Western scholarship. These concepts were discussed with reference to funded ARC research projects and her publications in international books and journals, including Review of Education Research, Written Communication, Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, Language and Education, and the Australasian Journal of Early Childhood.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
