Identity, Digital Storytelling and Linguistic Citizenship, Hub for Education & Language Diversity, King’s College, London, UK, 22 July 2021, 15:00 BST.
This event is part of the Hub for Education & Language Diversity (HELD) summer school, July 21-23, 2021, but is open to everyone.
What is the relationship between identity, digital storytelling and linguistic citizenship? Due to advances in digital technology, there are new relations of power at micro and macro levels, and digital literacy has become essential in “claiming the right to speak.” As language learners navigate these changing times, they need to negotiate new identities, investments, and imagined futures.
In this presentation, Dr Bonny Norton demonstrates that while there are social structures that may constrain a language learner’s linguistic citizenship, digital stories in multiple languages can help these learners claim the right to be heard. Drawing on her recent research on digital storytelling in both wealthy and poorly resourced communities worldwide, she discusses how freely available digital stories in multiple languages can harness the linguistic capital of language learners in homes and schools, with exciting implications for the promotion of linguistic citizenship in communities worldwide.
