If you happen to be in or around Leeds next month, you might be interested in a one-day seminar organised jointly by the University of Leeds Centre for Language Education Research (CLER) and members of the AHRC-funded Researching Multilingually at the Borders of Language, the Body, Law and the State project.
The seminar, which will take place on Friday 16 October (9.30-4.30) is titled Language Research, Performance and the Creative Arts, and it aims to “bring together language researchers interested in the arts” with a view to possibly creating a community of interested people. It is envisaged that there will be a small group of people attending (around 35 people), so there is going to be ample opportunity for active participation. There is no expectation that participants have experience of working with the creative arts.
