King’s College London: Language, Education & Linguistic Citizenship (UK)


Call for applications: Language, Education & Linguistic Citizenship, 20-21 July 2022, online. Deadline: 17 June 2022.

Language, Education & Linguistic Citizenship is a two-day online summer school program.

  • How can educators gain a better understanding of multilingual students’ use of language?
  • How can they acknowledge and foster their students’ linguistic repertoires and their right to be heard?
  • What is the relationship between language education and linguistic citizenship?

These and other questions will be explored in this participatory short course which will involve workshops, case studies, data sessions, readings and talks. You will join participants from a range of educational settings and sectors. The summer school is organised by HELD, a team of academics and third sector language professionals, activists & policy specialists: Melanie Cooke (convenor), Dermot Bryers, Sam Holmes, Constant Leung, Ben Rampton, Anthony Tomei, and Becky Winstanley.

Enrollment is limited to 30 participants. They will give priority to people whose work seems to fit with their aims and who they think will most benefit from the summer school, based on your application form. There is a participation fee of £30 (£10 for full time students), payable when your place has been confirmed.
