Why Language and Migration?
An event organised by the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism
Polarisation over migration continues to divide the world. Currently, the 27 countries of the EU are fiercely contesting a new pact on asylum and migration where biases around race, religion and ethnicity are at the heart of debates about values, identity and language.
Join Tony Capstick, author of Language and Migration, in conversation with five international scholars as they each respond to the question why language and migration?
