English Language Research Series 

Introduction

 Lisa NahajecWelcome to the English Language Research Seminar series, hosted by the Department of English. 

This term, the English Department will be hosting a series of visiting speakers from around the UK. They will be speaking on topics as diverse as sub-titling for the deaf and hard–of-hearing to language ideologies and language rights in Quebec. The series presents both academics and students with the opportunity to engage with up-to-date research in the field of language and linguistics. However, these talks are also interdisciplinary and we welcome interest from across the academic disciplines.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
