our words make worlds


As part of the AHRC-funded (OWRI) ‘Language Acts & Worldmaking’ project, we conducted a survey on attitudes towards digital culture and technology in the Modern Foreign Languages, with attention to both theory and practice. We were interested to hear about the experiences of people with any level of digital expertise, and whose work involved Modern Foreign Languages in any role (whether that be as researcher, learner, teacher, funder, policy-maker, digital practitioner, cultural practitioner or other).

We have analysed the survey results for future presentation and publication – all results have been anonymised- and will present findings shortly.

This survey was part of a research project called ‘Modern Foreign Languages Research: Digital Mediations’ which was submitted to, and approved by, the King’s College Research Ethics committee under its Minimal Ethical Risk Registration Process (REC Reference Number: MR/17/18-280).

The survey was open until 31st May 2018
