Language@Leeds is an interdisciplinary centre for language research and scholarship at the University of Leeds, encompassing expertise from the arts and humanities, education and social sciences, psychology and biological sciences, as well as computing and engineering. Our research addresses the following challenges: How can we communicate across cultures? How can we achieve greater social justice? How can we reduce inequalities between children and improve their life chances? What does humanity lose when languages disappear? How can we optimise language pedagogy to facilitate internationalisation? How can we improve the effectiveness of communication? How can we apprehend all forms of communication? How can we improve qualitative research across scientific disciplines?
Please come and see the breadth of L@L research through presentations and a poster session and discuss opportunities for new interdisciplinary collaborations.
