Event details

Part of the annual seminar series for the Centre for Global Englishes (CGE).

This talk looks at examples of translanguaging practices in complementary schools for minority ethnic children in the UK, multi-modality linguistic practices by multilingual speakers, and New Chinglish from a Post-Multilingualism perspective. The aim is to develop an approach which helps us to better understand the processes as well as the consequences of dynamic and fluid interactions between, across and beyond languages on social relations, social structures and individual’s social cognition.
