Speaking in Brogues

Universities tend to be multilingual communities, and for the most part, we teach and study in English. Do the sounds, rhythms and locutions of many mother tongues, echoing through our conversations, help us – and help others who are coming here – to feel at home? What role can language play in a period of increasing tensions over immigration and Europe? Maria Aristodemou (Birkbeck), Mattia Gallotti (School of Advanced Study, University of London), and Rut Blees (UCL) Luxemburg (Royal College of Art) will go for a ramble through these topics with Birkbeck’s Marina Warner.
