Join us at the inaugural Creative Multilingualism conference for talks, performance, and panel discussions on the theme of Languages and Creativity. Creative Multilingualism is a 4-year research programme, funded by the Arts and Humanities Council (AHRC), which is investigating the rich connections between linguistic diversity and creativity.

The research is being conducted in seven interlocking strands that draw on an exceptionally wide range of disciplines, including experimental, historical, comparative and cognitive linguistics, neurolinguistics, philology, rhetoric, literary criticism, comparative literature, translation studies, performance studies, social anthropology, ethnobiology, education, and business studies.

Topics to be covered at the conference include ‘Writing between Languages’, ‘Sense and nonsense across languages’, and ‘Multilingualism post Brexit’.
