Networking assembly: Translanguaging and Translation in the Superdiverse City

The University of Birmingham research project, ‘Translanguaging and Translation in the Superdiverse City’ is holding its first Networking Assembly on 13th May 2016.  This event, open to academics, students, community groups, public organisations, charities and the public, aims to create opportunities for cross-disciplinary, cross-sector, and cross-city conversations about communication in the superdiverse city.  The day will focus on everyday encounters in city contexts in relation to two themes: business and heritage.

The research project creates opportunities to understand the possibilities of multilingualism and superdiversity from a range of perspectives, including the arts, cultural and heritage sectors, business, and the academy. The network event will be held at Birmingham’s award-winning city centre science museum, Thinktank, which is a short walk from New Street Station.

Further information about the programme for the day is attached.

We are grateful to the Arts and Humanities Research Council for making this event possible.
