Durham’s School of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLAC) and School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) are key contributors to Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community (CrossLangDyn), one of the four large, interdisciplinary research programmes that the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is funding as part of its Open World Research Initiative (OWRI).
The Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community consortium is led by Professor Stephen Hutchings (University of Manchester). It is made up of three core partner institutions – the University of Manchester, Durham University, and the University of London’s Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Studies. It includes further collaborative partnerships with a number of other universities, in the UK and abroad, as well as a wide range of non-academic organisations, from sixth-form colleges and local councils to arts institutions, cultural diplomacy networks, and foreign-policy think tanks.
The consortium’s programme is structured into three interconnected research strands – the Multilingual (led by Professor Yaron Matras, University of Manchester), the Translingual (led by Professor Catherine Davies, IMLR, SAS, University of London), and the Transnational (co-led by Professors Andy Byford, MLAC and Anoush Ehteshami, SGIA, Durham University).
