Talk About Change #3: Immigration

July 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The third in a series of workshops hosted by Sheffield social entrepreneurs Our Mel and led by novelist and creative writer Désirée Reynolds, this Festival of the Mind-sponsored event will explore research about language change (‘reformation’) with input from the AHRC-funded Linguistic DNA project and 500 Reformations.

Workshop participants have the chance to contribute to a small anthology, and the option to take part in a spoken-word performance in the Festival Spiegeltent in September.

Discussion at this session will focus on language about immigrants and immigration, from 1517 to 2018.
