Language sanctuaries: why language is integral to the arts of integration
27 April 2020, 1pm-2pm
In this webinar, Alison Phipps with colleagues will present the work of the UNESCO Chair for Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts, with a particular focus on the ways in which language may offer sanctuary. This will include an examination of different policies that focus on integration through language acquisition; a critical assessment of the pitfalls in focusing on language acquisition as a technological or technocratic 'fix' to the tasks accompanying integration; a discussion of the ways in which a monolingual perspective dominates and shapes understandings of the language acquisition; and a consideration of shifting policy landscapes. In the presentation, Alison with colleagues will draw on insights from their work in Gaza, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Aoteaora, Scotland and in refugee communities which take a sanctuary view of language.
The webinar will include poetry, story, dance and song together with more traditional academic presentation.
The webinar is a joint event with the UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts at Glasgow University,hosted by the UEA University of Sanctuary initiative.
