CREA organizes a series of presentations on dialogic reading
« Dialogic reading, language, communication and culture » is the title of the second part of the V Conference on Educational Change, organized by the Centre of Social and Educational Research (CREA), a group that is part of the Universitat de Barcelona (UB, University of Barcelona). This conference will be held on 3-4 December in the PCB Auditorium (c/ Baldiri Reixac, 4-6). The conference aims to stimulate a setting in which to debate, from theory and practice, reading as a psychological, linguistic, educational, cultural and social process.
Dialogic reading implies the reading and uncovering of meaning through a text from which readers build understanding, deepen their literary interpretations and reflect on life and society through equalitarian dialogue with other readers. This process opens up the opportunity for personal and social change, both as a reader and individual. This kind of reading, which provides new insight into educational and cultural reading, is done, for example, in schools and training centres, libraries, museums and in virtual settings.
The Conference will include presentations by John Searle, Mills Chair in the Philosophy of Minds and Language at the University of California in Berkeley; Marta Soler, Ramon y Cajal researcher of the UB; Pablo del Río, full professor of Communication at the Universidad de Salamanca and Anna Mª Araujo, professor of Education at the Universitat Pontifícia Catòlica de Sao Paulo. The programme also includes a number of round tables in which several issues will be debated, such as diversity of settings, and models of dialogic reading, the relation between dialogue, reality and text, or multilinguistics and education related to reading.
