The symposium was arranged in relation to the publication of the edited book Global Developments in Literacy Research for Science Education (Eds. Kok-Sing Tang and Kristina Danielsson) to be released by Springer in 2018. This was one result of an initiation grant for research collaboration between Singapore and Stockholm University in the field of literacy and multimodality (head: Professor Kristina Danielsson, Department of Language Education), funded by Stockholm University.
