The Languages of Covid-19: Implications for Global Health Care, 21-22 June 2021
This British Academy-funded project, organised by Dr Steven Wilson and Dr Piotr Blumczynski (QUB), examines the role that modern languages and translation studies can play in revealing new ways of thinking about and communicating Covid-19. Focusing on the language used in multilingual healthcare settings, international public health campaigns and by patients across the globe, the project analyses what new facets or understandings of the disease might be revealed by a linguistic and cultural encounter with non-Anglophone languages and societies. This cultural panel is convened by Dr Marta Arnaldi. Contributions from poetry, music, theatre, the visual arts and digital production.
