After decades of development, the research and practice of media literacy education has gradually become mature. The field of media literacy is located at the crossroad of many academic disciplines and it possesses a multidisciplinary characteristic. For both research and practice, media literacy is not restricted to be carried out in a single discipline. Media literacy attracts scholars and educators from communication studies, education, journalism, cultural studies, health communication, language, arts, new media, etc. to work in this field and establish diversified development. This conference will be held in Hong Kong Baptist University. It is hoped that, in the 21st century new media environment, outstanding scholars and educators can gather together to discuss the new developmental path of media literacy education.
