Free to attend conference: Translation and Translanguaging
We are pleased to announce the launch of the research project ‘Translation and Translanguaging: Investigating Linguistic and Cultural Transformations in Superdiverse Wards in Four UK Cities’. The Launch Conference will be held at the University of Birmingham Business School on Friday 18th July. The day is organised around the theme of multilingualism in business, sport, law, heritage and education. The interdisciplinary research programme will generate new knowledge about how people interact in diverse cities. The research findings will inform policy locally, nationally, and internationally. All are welcome to register for the event before the friday 4th July deadline. The project has a website and now also has a twitter account - @TLANGProject.
The project is being funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by the MOSAIC Centre for Research on Multilingualism at the University of Birmingham. The other universities involved are Leeds, Cardiff and Birkbeck (London). The Leeds-based co-investigators are Professor Mike Baynham and Dr James Simpson, both in the School of Education. They are working with two Researchers, Dr John Callaghan and Jolana Hanusova, and a Doctoral student, Jessica Bradley. The Leeds-based team will be working in Harehills for the next four years.
