Englishes - A Conversation

Fri 24 February, 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Venue: LU Arts Project Space, 1st Floor, Edward Barnsley Building, Loughborough University

Book Tickets

Join us for an afternoon of presentations, discussion and film screenings. Light refreshments will be provided.

This event is constructed around artist Nicoline van Harskamp’s preoccupation with investigating the global use of English by non-native speakers around the world. Having already made a series of video works focusing on the subject the artist continued her research at Loughborough University where she was invited by Radar to make a new work in collaboration with its linguists.

A new work, ‘Apologies and Compliments’, was made as part of the commission and will be screened alongside other videos from the series known as Englishes, an on-going a project that seeks to provoke questions about the features and possible declinations of a future global English.

The screenings will be accompanied by a series of discussions led by Nicoline van Harskamp who will host conversations between a group of respondents representing a variety of academic disciplines and the audience including:

Sam Belinfante (Director, Centre of Audio Visual Experimentation, University of Leeds)
Jessica Bradley (Doctoral Researcher, TLANG Project, School of Education, University of Leeds)
Alexandre Christoyannopoulos (Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, Loughborough University)
Heather Connelly (Research Fellow, Faculty of Arts, Design& Media, Birmingham City University)
Arianna Maiorani (Senior Lecturer in Linguistics, Loughborough University)
Jessica Robles (Lecturer in Social Sciences, Loughborough University)
