Greening Modern Languages Research & Teaching

An International Online Conference, 23rd-25th March 2023

This two-day international online conference ‘Greening Modern Languages Research and Teaching’ will open a reflection on the place of Modern Languages in the Environmental Humanities and in collective action towards environmental sustainability and justice.

‘Greening Modern Languages Research and Teaching’ is funded by the British Academy / Leverhulme Trust Small Grant scheme (SRG22\220097).

The conference will reflect on the role Modern Languages as a discipline has to play in times of ecological crises, in rethinking our academic practice as educators, scholars and eco-citizens, and ways in which this intersects with current efforts to decentre and decolonise the curriculum.

Outputs stemming from the conference will include an edited volume; and a website, which will feature the multilingual lexicon and pedagogical toolkit.
