UCL Department of Scandinavian Studies would like to invite you to our forthcoming witness seminar 'Language Diversity in the Nordic countries and the UK'.

The aim of this seminar is to bring academics studying languages in Nordic countries and the UK, together with ‘witnesses’ who have personal experience of speaking or working with those who speak minority languages, regional dialects or urban vernaculars. In doing so, it creates a dialogue between lived experience and research, giving all participants the opportunity to think differently about the way they use and view their own and others’ use of language.

The seminar will be followed by a post-graduate workshop on the morning of Saturday 9th June.
