How do we boldly communicate the impact of the work languages do in the world?

The guiding principle of Language Acts and Worldmaking is that language holds the key to how we understand and construct the world and ourselves. This we call worldmaking. This principle has inspired the connections we try to make between Modern Languages research, teaching and community. So far, we have worked with several hundred co-researchers and practitioners from a wide range of educational, social and cultural organisations. In our 2021 conference we want to strengthen these communities who share the aim of making language-learning inclusive, socially engaged and international in scope.
