BRILLE seminar series

Researching Multilingually at the borders of language, the body, law and the state - Dr Jane Andrews, Department of Education, BRILLE

Date: Thursday 3 July 2014
Room: 2S609
Time: 17:00 – 18:30

This Brille seminar introduces an AHRC funded research project funded under its “Translating Cultures” theme, which started in April 2014 and will continue until 2017. The project consists of five case studies which explore the uses of languages in challenging contexts and, additionally, two research hubs. One research hub will focus on creative arts methods for both engaging in and disseminating research. The second research hub focuses on the methods for engaging in researching multilingually. As a member of the research methods hub I will explore this aspect of the project’s work in more detail while ensuring the case studies and creative arts contributions are introduced as well. The five case studies explore the following issues and contexts:

  • Translating the emotional impact of sexual and gender based trauma in Scotland and Sierra Leone;
  • Translating vulnerability and silence into the legal process in Scotland and the Netherlands;
  • Working and research multilingually at state and EU borders with a focus on Romania and Bulgaria;
  • Multilingual ecologies in the American southwest borderlands;
  • Arabic as a foreign language for international learners.
