Stories of reading: A national conversation

Scotland has positioned itself as a country that challenges intolerance and we’re interested in how our research and work in the area of children’s literature can contribute to the educational future of a new generation of children who value diversity. Access to high-quality multilingual and multimodal children’s literature is key to this process.

This event is arranged in three stages:

  • Reflection on the ways in which the collaborative work of the University of Glasgow team has impacted your organisation’s planning, ways of thinking and working.
  • Presentations by participants featuring current work and areas of concern and future research. (Children and young people may also be involved in presentations.)
  • Discussion on ways of moving forward together with a national project that draws on our collective understanding of the potential of children’s literature as a source of positive thinking.

Presentations will be recorded and will be available on Facebook under 'Stories of Reading'.

Location: Glasgow
Date: 8 November 2017
