Increasingly volatile global political and economic contexts call the issues of mobility and globalisation in question. Consequently, terms such as communities and moving borders recur in Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics research.

 This one day seminar aims at creating a space where colleagues from Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics exchange their latest research findings about language, communities and moving borders, learn from each other’s theoretical and methodological perspectives, and explore new and further areas of collaboration.

 The seminar will finish with a panel discussion which considers the key issues and challenges for Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics research.

 Confirmed speakers: Professor Angela Creese (University of Birmingham, PI for Translation and Translanguaging: Investigating Linguistic and Cultural Transformations in Superdiverse Wards in Four UK Cities project) Professor Alison Phipps (University of Glasgow, PI for Borders of Language: The Body, Law and the State project) Professor Catherine Boyle (King’s College London, PI for the Language Acts and Worldmaking project)

 Confirmed panel discussants: Charles Forsdick (University of Liverpool, AHRC Theme Leadership Fellow, ‘Translating Cultures’) Janice Carruthers(Queen’s University Belfast, AHRC Theme Leadership Fellow, Modern Languages) Li Wei (UCL Institute of Education) Bernard McGuirk (University of Nottingham)

 This event is organised by Professor Zhu Hua (Birkbeck, University of London) and Professor Catherine Davies (Institute of Modern Language Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London)

With support from ‘Translating Cultures’ and ‘Open World Research Initiative’ projects, both funded by the AHRC
