MEITS is a major interdisciplinary research project funded under the AHRC Open World Research Initiative which aims to promote the value of languages and language learning in the UK.

Through six interlocking research strands, MEITS investigates how the insights gained from stepping outside a single language, culture and mode of thought are vital to individuals and societies.

MEITS seeks to:

Create new knowledge about the opportunities and challenges of multilingualism for individuals, communities and nations

Change attitudes towards multilingualism in the general public and amongst key stakeholders and policymakers

Develop new interdisciplinary research paradigms and methodologies

Re-energize Modern Languages by demonstrating how an innovative interdisciplinary project can integrate language-led research with literary-cultural studies and thereby address key issues of our times

MEITS runs multilingualism seminars twice a term, on a Thursday from 1pm to 2.30pm. Each seminar consists of two speakers presenting for about 20-25 minutes each followed by a discussion/questions.

MEITS multilingualism seminars are also announced on the MEITS website at www.meits.org/events.
