Reading Adventures: Perspectives on Reading and the Culture of the Book

19 - 21 february 2007
Jerusalem, Israel

Chairperson of Steering Committee: Prof. Zohar Shavit, Unit for Culture Research, Tel Aviv University

This international conference will focus on reading and the culture of the book. The conference is being held as part of and in conjunction with the 23rd Jerusalem International Book Fair, and its aim is to put reading and the culture of the book on the educational and cultural agenda in Israel.

CET – the Center for Educational Technology, principle organizer of the conference, has, for the past 15 years, been active in encouraging reading and in developing school libraries. A non-profit organization, CET develops and runs a range of educational programs aimed at promoting free, voluntary reading among children and adolescents. Particular emphasis is given to creating innovative approaches and using the internet as a tool for promoting reading. CET works with a broad cross-section of Israeli society, and aims to involving parents and the wider community in its programs. Furthermore, CET seeks to increase awareness among educators of the importance of free, voluntary reading and its correlation with academic achievements.

Lectures will be given in Hebrew or in English. Simultaneous translation will be available.
