Translation and translanguaging project concludes

For the last four years, a team from the School of Education have been working on a large AHRC-funded project.

Translation & Translanguaging: Investigating Linguistic and Cultural Transformations in four inner-city wards – TLANG – is led by Professor Angela Creese in Birmingham; the Leeds team are Mike Baynham and James Simpson (Co-Is), Jolana Hanusova & John Callaghan (Researchers), Jessica Bradley (Doctoral Researcher) and Emilee Moore (Visiting Academic from Autonoma University, Barcelona). 

In late March we held a Leeds City Seminar, to celebrate the project and to discuss its findings as they related to Leeds. Attending were the Leeds-based partners and others associated with the project over the past four years. Despite the unseasonal snow, over 30 project stakeholders managed to get to the seminar. These included our Key Participants, the groups we have worked with, and representatives from the City Council and a range of third-sector, educational and arts organisations. At the seminar we launched the Leeds City Report which summarises the study as it took place in Leeds and draws out key findings relevant to the city.

The TLang project also held its end-of-project conference in Birmingham on 28-29 March 2018. You can read a report of the event on the TLang blog here:
