our words make worlds

Language Acts and Worldmaking is a flagship project funded by the AHRC Open World Research Initiative, which aims to regenerate and transform modern language learning by foregrounding language's power to shape how we live and make our worlds.

Multilingualism and Language Learning: Linguistic practices and attitudes of university students learning languages in Europe and beyond

The research project forms part of a large–scale research initiative ‘Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community’, an AHRC-Funded OWRI Programme, based at the University of Manchester.

In our first conference, Languages Memory, which ran from 13-14 June, we wanted to enliven our awareness of the ways in which languages are experienced, practised, taught and researched. Video and audio recordings of the conference sessions are now up on our website.
