This interdisciplinary conference, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, will bring together current research on the role of languages in war, conflict and peacemaking situations, focusing on such questions as:
- What are the foreign language policies of government, military and multilateral agencies in conflict situations?
- What are the language-related experiences of those involved 'on the ground' in these conflicts?
- What are the implications for language intermediaries who work in conflict zones?
Invited keynote speakers include Professor Mona Baker (University of Manchester) and Professor Joanna Bourke (Birkbeck College).
