This paper summarises outcomes from an ESRC-funded seminar series, held between October 2009 and April 2011, which brought together researchers and practitioners involved in four research projects focused, in different ways, on literacy, tertiary education, and digital communication. Apart from disseminating the research of the four projects involved, the seminars also set out to develop an agenda for new research, exploring current and predicted developments in practices around literacy and digital communication in higher and further education. The paper gives some background on the four projects involved and summarises the different approaches to researching literacy that they brought to the seminars. Broad research themes emerging from the seminars are presented and discussed.
