‘Multilingualism in contemporary society'
Professor Janice Carruthers gave a public lecture at Swansea University on Thursday 30 March 2017, entitled 'Multilingualism in contemporary society: challenges and benefits'. The talk drew on her research as part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded MEITS project: ‘Multilingualism. Empowering Individuals, Transforming Societies’ (www.meits.org). Professor Carruthers leads the strand which addresses Sociolinguistic issues around multilingualism in France and Ireland.
Janice Carruthers is Professor of French Linguistics at Queen’s University Belfast, and since January 2017 she has been the Leadership Fellow in Modern Languages at the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
