MultiLEAP Webinar 8 – Multiliteracies cocktail 2022 webinar
March 29, 2022 @ 14:00 - 16:00
We welcome you to join Multiliteracies cocktail 2022 webinar. In the webinar, MultiLEAP’s postdoctoral researchers, Päivi Iikkanen, Joanna Kedra and Aino-Kaisa Koistinen, each representing different disciplinary perspectives, will together with the audience explore various connections to multiliteracies research and practice. With short inputs, each presenter will invite the audience to discuss the ambiguity of the concept of multiliteracies. As a result, we aim to prepare a tasty multiliteracies cocktail that is full of questions and doubts.
Päivi Iikkanen works as a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Applied Language Studies at the University of Jyväskylä. Her current research interests are related to the role of multiliteracies in the ways migrants renegotiate their professional identity.
