This year marks the centenary of the inclusion of language as a human right in international treaties. Has this been an effective approach to linguistic inequalities?

Join us to hear more about this subject, in the latest lecture by our Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor, Professor Doug Kibbee (Emeritus, University of Illinois).

Professor Kibbee is a world expert on the relationship between language and law and questions of linguistic rights and inequality. This lecture is hosted by the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies, in partnership with the Rights and Justice Priority Area.

This event takes place from 5pm, Wednesday 10 April 2019 at A02, Highfield House, University Park.

This is a free event, open to all. No booking required.
