Goldsmiths Library Research Cafe : Disrupting knowledge with multilingualism

Goldsmiths Library Research Cafe : Disrupting knowledge with multilingualism In-Person

Research Cafés are free public talks in an accessible space. Refreshments are provided and we invite questions and discussion from the floor once speakers have finished their talks.


Dr Alessia Cogo (ECW): Multilingualism and translanguaging within English : challenging the dominance of English monolingual policies and practices. This short talk provides examples of contexts where adopting a translanguaging approach enriches language learning and teaching, but also lays the groundwork for linguistic justice.


Dr Vally Lytra (ES): A translingual and transcultural orientation to language and language learning. This short talk illustrates how such an orientation that encompassed children’s entire semiotic repertoires, aesthetic resources, and lived experience across home, school, and community allows us to explore very young children’s agency and the transformative potential of their creative text-making and talk about text.


Dr Cristina Ros I Solé (ES): Material Interculturality. This short talk shows how ordinary practices with our ordinary objects allow us to make the world anew by re-arranging its materiality.


Alessia Cogo, Vally Lytra and Cristina Ros I Solé are affiliated with the Centre for Language, Culture and Learning and are members of the Goldsmiths multilingualism research group: https://www.gold.ac.uk/clcl/multilingualism/
