Languages Future Conference

Event date Event time Event location
27/04/2020 - 28/04/2020 10:00 am - 4:30 pm King's College London

The OWRI Language Acts and Worldmaking team has been working together since June 2016. In 2020 the Languages Future Conference will consolidate their research by considering as a community how our work in languages and worldmaking should intervene in the major debates of our time. A key question will be about capacity-building for future language learners, researchers and activists. Languages Future is a call for action. How do we boldly communicate the impact of the work languages do in the world?

Proposals and themes

The conference organisers are currently seeking proposals for inclusion in the conference, responding to themes. The idea could be, for example, an individual presentation, an academic panel of papers, an interactive workshop, a lecture, open discussion, posters, a debate, a provocation.  Key themes are outlined in the link.

Proposals should be sent to us on the attached form by Friday 20 December 2019. They should be sent to languageacts@kcl.ac.uk. To download a copy of the CfP as a pdf click here.
