Talking of Language

A webinar series by Lancaster University’s Department of Linguistics and English Language

Does talking about Covid-19 as a tsunami or as a war matter? In which ways is language used in the workplace and in the media? How can you get to grips with analysing historical texts? And how do children from different cultures learn to talk about the mind?

All these questions will be addressed in Talking of Language, a series of free online talks that the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University is organising in 2020 and 2021. The 30-minute webinars (with 15 minutes for questions afterwards) take place on MS Teams on Wednesdays from 14:00 to 14:45 and are aimed at students in the final years of school, such as Year 11 to 13 students in the UK. Other people fascinated by the topics are welcome to join the sessions too, of course!

If you are interested, please register for each talk that you wish to attend separately, using the links below. After registration, you will receive a confirmation email that will also provide details on how to access the webinar.

Recordings of our seminar series talks will be made available afterwards on Lancaster University’s Schools Resource Hub.
