Translation and Translanguaging: Investigating linguistic and cultural transformations in superdiverse wards in four cities

Posted on Wednesday 2nd July 2014

The Launch Conference of the research project ‘Translation and Translanguaging: Investigating Linguistic and Cultural Transformations in Superdiverse Wards in Four UK Cities’, will be held at the University of Birmingham Business School on Friday 18 July.

This project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by the MOSAIC Centre for Research on Multilingualism at the University of Birmingham with the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS)

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.

The research project is a collaboration between academic researchers, non-academic partners, and community stakeholders. It is also a partnership between four UK universities and the private, public and third sectors.
