Reading goes beyond a single literacy. Reading processes serve different functions and have radically different goals. These processes thus require different literacies and competencies. This picture while far from being known to a wider public is further complicated by the continuous development of new reading media and forms of use in a digital environment. The ability to process information, meanwhile, is at the core of individual scholarly and academic success. Very few studies have hitherto addressed this central concern for the university of the future. This international conference attempts to fill this gap scholars and practitioners from all relevant disciplines are invited to contribute.
The conference is aimed at scholars, practitioners and students from all relevant disciplines,
librarians, and the interested public. Lectures will be presented in English.
The conference is sponsored by the International Book History Society (Internationale
Buchwissenschaftliche Gesellschaft) and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
