The Center for Educational Resources in Culture Language and Literacy (CERCLL), a National Language Resource Center at the University of Arizona co-directed by German Studies Professor Chantelle Warner, will host a hybrid symposium on Second Language Digital Literacies (L2DL) this October. This is the third such symposium to be held at UA and the focus of this event is "Participation, Equity, and Inclusion." According to the symposium web site, the week-long event will "contribute to discussions of the role of digital literacies in second language learning and teaching and biliteracy development,  by considering the ways in which technologically-mediated communication can enable new forms of participation and access, but also the ways in which participation in digital spaces is rarely full and equitable, but is more often than not fraught with questions of legitimacy and symbolic power."

The L2DL Symposium includes a week of digital presentations including both synchronous and asynchronous disccussions between October 15 and 20 and a day of co-present talks from leaders in the field on October 20. Registration is free and more information can be found at the event web site: https://l2dl.arizona.edu/
