LEDS meeting 5th December 2018: Researching Multilingually in LE research

4 December 2018

Our next LEDS gathering is at 4.30pm this Wednesday, 5th December.  Usual place – Room 3.66 in the John Percival Building.

The topic this week is Researching Multilingually in LE research. Judith will be kicking off by talking to you briefly about what is meant by “researching multilingually”, and how this has manifested in her own linguistic ethnographic research. We will then all  consider and exchange views on how we as researchers can adopt a researching multilingually standpoint in aspects of our own research.

Anyone with time to spare who fancies a bit of light reading in advance (definitely NOT required reading though!), can browse the researcher profiles in the Researching Multilingually network here:

and/or can skim read the following article:  Holmes, P., Fay, R., Andrews, J., & Attia, M. (2013). Researching multilingually: New theoretical and methodological directionsInternational Journal of Applied Linguistics23(3), 285–299.

Looking forward to seeing those of you who can make it!  For those who cannot, don’t worry we will be back in the New Year 😊  We will spend a bit of time on Wednesday discussing the schedule for next term in order to publish it ASAP.
