The symposium was a lively day of presentations and discussions examining forms of reading aloud, everyday reading and relationships between literacy and oracy, in and out of the classroom.

The RABiT project aims to expand what we all think of when we hear the word 'reading' by documenting and analysing contemporary adult reading aloud practices. We want to explore the diversity of reading practices (on and offline) that adults perform or experience in different communities, languages, contexts and phases of our lives.
