The Association is immensely grateful to Cathy and Julia for all the work they have done over the last three years in ensuring that Literacy has continued to thrive both in quality and circulation, as well as reputation.

A launch symposium, including the dissemination of a study mapping new literacies to Media Studies, will be held in London in the Autumn. Alongside this, the SIG will invite expressions of interest for new research into media literacies by UKLA members.
Over the initial two years of the SIG's activities, it will aim to promote a research-informed approach to media literacy education and to promote media literacy as an essential element of literacy education in the 21st century; collate and support research-informed educational media literacy practice and disseminate this to both literacy and media educators to bring these two communities of practice together.
