Centre for Language Education Research (CLER)

At Leeds we are changing the conversation about Language Education

The Centre for Language Education Research (CLER) provides a platform for the development of new, interdisciplinary lines of inquiry related to language education with the aim of improving people’s lives and promoting an inclusive, just and prosperous society.

CLER’s research is positioned at the interface of social sciences and arts and humanities and engages with broad questions of the role of language in contemporary society and of the role of language education for sustainable development, belonging, global citizenship, and appreciation of linguistic and cultural diversity.

Events at CLER

CLER is an active research centre engaging with researchers, educators, cultural organisations and local communities. Our events are open to all and we particularly welcome members of communities outside of the university to contribute to our conversations.
