Real readers reading is an exciting series of linked research seminars which now continues into its third year running two seminars in the Michaelmas term of 2016 as part of the PLACE academic group events in 2016-2017.

In this seminar series, different presenters share their experience of empirical reading research and reflect on how their various methodologies afford deeper insight into reading and readers. We encourage participants to attend both sessions to make the most of the cumulative effect of the presentations and discussion. This year we will focus on research in the Faculty.

It is not to be missed by anyone with an interest in reading research. Places are limited, so reserve yours now to avoid disappointment. Refreshments provided to keep energy levels high! To book your place, contact Lucian Stephenson lms56@cam.ac.uk.

This session involves presentations given by Faculty doctoral students who are all at different stages with their PhD degrees. They will focus specifically on the methodologies and research methods by which they are exploring spaces in which people read. These spaces include: places where young children learn to read in primary schools; places where children choose to read such as library spaces; and spaces afforded by actual books themselves such as the layout of the words and images. Each presenter will share some of their thinking about the way they have already undertaken research (or are planning to undertake it in the near future). They will speak for 15 minutes and then spend 15 minutes answering questions and, cumulatively, generating discussion. It promises to be a fascinating session.

This talk is part of the Pedagogy, Language, Arts & Culture in Education (PLACE) Group Seminars series.
