Language Acts and Worldmaking is Language Acts and Worldmaking is an Arts and Humanities Research Council Open World Research Initiative flagship project. It aims to regenerate and transform Modern Languages learning, teaching and research by foregrounding language's power to shape how we think and feel about ourselves, other people around us, and the world in general. Involving colleagues from King’s College London, the Open University, Queen Mary University of London and the University of Westminster, our six different research strands are Travelling Concepts, Translation Acts, Digital Mediations, Loaded Meanings, Diasporic Identities and the Politics of Language Teaching, and Language Transitions.
