Linguistic Diversity Collective launched
A new initiative in the Department of Linguistics and English Language has recently launched.
The Linguistic Diversity Collective (LDC) comprises several academics in the department and aims to research and champion linguistic diversity locally and globally through research and public engagement activities.
The LDC will be taking part in two engagement activities in June, both of which are free to attend and open to the public.
Wednesday, 15 June sees a special event for multilingual parents and their young children take place as part of Manchester City of Literature’s Festival of Libraries 2022. ‘Have you seen my duckling? – Storytime in mother languages’ is an interactive session which introduces ways to help parents of minority languages make the most of their local libraries.
These sessions can be booked online or at the host library:
Wednesday, 15 June 2022 - Storytime in Mother Languages – Leigh Library – 10am
Wednesday, 15 June 2022 - Storytime in Mother Languages – Pendleton Library – 1.30pm
On Saturday, 25 June, the LDC joins the University’s Community Festival 2022, where participants can interact with activities and explore how they use their own languages and dialects.
