Event description

Description

Creative Multilingualism, a 4-year research programme which is part of the AHRC's ambitious Open World Research Initiative, invites you to a two-day conference on Creative Multilingual Identities to be held at the University of Reading, Institute of Education.

The concept of multilingual identities has become an increasingly important one in contemporary social, literary and educational discourse in recent years. The aim of this two-day conference is to explore how creative processes create and shape multilingual identities. Particular areas of focus will include:

  • the fluid nature of people’s linguistic identities in multilingual settings
  • the ways engaging with artistic/cultural practitioners shapes multilingual identity
  • the relationship between language and multilingual identity
  • parents and teachers working creatively to support young people’s development of their multilingual identity

There is no charge for attendance at the conference or for refreshments over the two days.

Further details about the event can be found on the Creative Multilingualism website.
