Following on from the inaugural UKLPAB conference in 2016, the theme of this year’s meeting will be devolution and the extent of policy variation post-Brexit. What will be the significance of Brexit for language policies adopted by UK nations?
Potential themes could include:
- Will Brexit be significant for strategies and policies adopted by UK nations to promote minority languages and signed languages?
- Given that education is devolved, how might the teaching of modern foreign languages be approached differently across the UK?
- How might overarching macro-economic changes brought about by Brexit influence language policies, including those of broadcasters and health bodies?
The event is free. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
