About the International Media Literacy Research Symposium




Founded in 2013 by Belinha De Abreu, PhD as an initiative to bring together new and established researchers  from all areas studying media literacy education around the world.




Media literacy is a growing field with a need for developing and increasing the research within it.   With each conference, we hope to shorten the present gap by filling it with works from current scholars, new researchers, graduate students, educators and others who have a vested interest in opening this field and moving it forward from all over the world.

We hope you will join us.
