The lecture will be given by Professor Catherine Davies on 19 April 2016.

On 19th April 2016, Professor Catherine Davies (University of London) will give the Roy Knight Memorial Lecture at Swansea University.  The lecture will be entitled:  ‘The Changing Landscape of Modern Languages Research’, and will ask the following questions:   What is Modern Languages Research? What is the special domain of modern languages research expertise? Can we define a single Modern Languages discipline.  To what extent is modern languages research reconfigured in response to government policies and funding priorities, and why is it important that we clearly articulate the significance of modern languages research? These are just some of the questions raised in this talk which it is hoped will develop into a more sustained research conversation.

A Reception will be held from 6pm, and the lecture will begin at 6.30 pm.  The lecture will be held in the Wallace Lecture Theatre, Wallace Building, Swansea University (Singleton Park Campus).

This is a free public lecture, and all are welcome.
