Being multilingual: Perspectives from language, education, health, neuroscience, migration

CeLM Showcase: Language and Literacy, 16 June, 6-7pm BST

Do multilinguals think about space and time differently in their languages? What is the relationship between language learning and creativity? What happens in the brain when we learn new words, and how does neuro-degenerative disease affect multilingual speakers? How can photography address the experience of multilingual migrants and refugees?

The Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM) will be addressing these exciting questions in a series of five short online events. Join us to find out about the latest research on what it means to be multilingual today.

Each event will take place online on a Wednesday evening (6-7pm) from 16th June – 14th July, 2021. In each talk, we will provide an overview of our research in different areas, and discuss some example projects. All events are free, but you will need to pre-register here.
