  • Worldmaking and languages
  • History legacy and future of UK, EU and international languages policies and comparative perspectives
  • Language ideologies and pedagogies
  • Languages in moments of crisis
  • New ecologies of memory
  • Digital methods and memory practices in relation to Modern Languages
  • Technologies of language learning across time
  • Languages and coloniality; the postcolonial and the transnational
  • Languages and the archive; mnemonics and memory palaces
  • Lost languages, linguicide and future languages
  • Remembering language as play
  • Diasporic communities and language memory

Applications for workshops, conferences, public events, or other projects that resonated with theme of Languages Memory were welcomed.
