Inspirational speaker events for SECL students

By Sophia Cheraitia | 13th Dec 2018

The Student Success Project is organising the first in a series of inspirational speaker events for SECL students throughout the term.

The first of these talks will take place on Wednesday 16 January, presented by Professor Itesh Sachdev, who will be examining the complex relationship between language, communication and group identity in multilingual communication, using data from indigenous and migrant minorities and majorities around the world.

Dr Laura Bailey, Lecturer in the Department of English Language & Linguistics, writes, ‘Professor Sachdev’s talk will be essential for anyone interested in language, communication and identity. He will discuss issues of ethnicity and minorities, as well as how language and community are linked. Professor Sachdev is multilingual himself, was raised in Kenya, and has worked all over the world. He currently researches urban multiculturalism. His talk will be suitable for all, and students are especially welcome.’

The lecture will be free entry and open to all. For more information, please see our events calendar.
