The 2nd
International Conference and Linguistics and Language Teaching
20-21 October 2017

Literacy has long become a central part of human life, particularly in this twenty first century. Literacy plays a pivotal role in many life sectors including social, economic, education, politics, and many more.  Often, it is also used as one of the main criteria to gate-keep people from getting access to one or more prestigious capitals offered in a certain community.

Currently, notion of literacy improves dynamically as it is challenged by the development of information technology. Being literate does not only mean being able to read texts literally, but rather being literate in the 21st century means being able to capture messages presented within and beyond texts as they are embedded in the sociocultural and sociopolitical settings. Having a good command of literacy skills enables people to improve and broaden their knowledge, to synthesize information from different sources, and also to learn brand new subjects.

Within Indonesia context, there has been a renowned literacy reform lately which focuses on the practices at schools. This indicates that education institutions play important roles in strengthening the national literacy level. In response to this, many teaching practitioners and school stakeholders continuously strive for any possible ways as to succeed this program.

This conference is designed to facilitate educators, linguists, teaching practitioners, policy makers, researchers and anyone who are interested in any matter related to literacy, linguistics, and language teaching to:

  1. share and explore insights on critical views of literacy, how it develops, affects, and shapes a nation as is reflected in its civilians’ way of thinking and deeds.
  2. critically discuss different theoretical perspectives in linguistics and language teaching as how they can be exploited to promote and enhance the national literacy level.
  3. examine any available challenges, opportunities, and resources existed either inside or outside classrooms and school contexts in augmenting literacy skills.
