In our first conference, Languages Memory, which ran from 13-14 June 2018, we wanted to enliven our awareness of the ways in which languages are experienced, practised, taught and researched. We reflected upon the place of language learning and engaged with the material and historical force of languages in the world.
Conference sessions all responded to the central theme of Languages Memory in innovative and creative ways, working across a wide range of disciplines and methodologies. Sessions included expert panels, drama and soundscape workshops, poetry presentations, and autoethnographic reflections. The conference programme also included a specially invited keynote address, and expert policy panel.
