Research Centres and Satellites

Language@Leeds brings together and hosts a number of centres and satellites.

The centres were established independently of Language@Leeds, but their mission aligns closely with that of L@L.

The satellites are flagship L@L initiatives aiming to connect people, ideas and resources around shared interests. All are language-related; most are interdisciplinary.  Some satellites have a specific agenda, and aim to be visible to national and international audiences.  Others have a more flexible remit, and may have a natural life-cycle (e.g. for the duration of a project).

If you are interested in setting up a new satellite, please get in touch via language@leeds.ac.uk
