Language Stories in Liverpool: Engaging with Transnational Research Through a Multilingual and Multimedia Activity
This presentation features an experience of transnational research-led activity for students of Modern Languages and Cultures. The activity has been designed to respond to the Transnationalizing Modern Languages (TML) Policy Document Reframing Language Education for a Global Future, targeting specifically the key issues around developing cultural literacy in language education while challenging the association of language and nation.
The aim of this experience has been to open up spaces for multilingual learning in the context where participants live and study. The students have been invited to produce materials (either textual or visual) on the presence of multiple languages and cultural heritages in Liverpool. We will reflect on the affective dimension of the activity as well as its impact on language learning and the ability for learners to articulate cultural awareness.
