This one-day workshop will highlight the training activities and placements undertaken by the participants in the scheme and will explore various methods for multilingual research. We invite academics interested in multilingualism to join us for a day of presentations and discussion about multilingual research. The workshop will culminate with a keynote talk by Esther de Leeuw, Queen Mary, followed by a reception. De Leeuw is an expert in multilingualism and co-founder of Multilingual Capital, a group which promotes multilingualism as a positive asset for London. We also invite all attendees to the premiere of "Kanraxel - the confluence of Agnack", a cinematic new documentary. The film stunningly portrays the complex multilingual situation in a rural Senegalese village: kck.st/11KvDhG.
The workshop is open to all.
