Digital Mediations and Advanced Critical Literacies In Modern Languages And Cultures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores interactions and tensions between digital culture and Modern Languages research across numerous disciplinary and methodological perspectives, mapping a topography which is rich and complex, but from which we propose strategic directions for the acquisition of critical digital literacies in language education. We argue that digital mediation in language education does not just imply studying the digital transformations in Modern Languages, but rather a more collaborative (and bidirectional) engagement, which also involves bringing multilingual and transcultural expertise to bear on digital ecosystems and study objects. This leads to a series of mutual disruptions between the fields of Modern Languages and Digital Humanities in both pedagogy (engaging the dynamics of a multilingual and inter-cultural classroom) and research (designing transcultural and translingual methods and interfaces).
