Staff and students in languages and linguistics are engaged in research projects in several areas of general and applied linguistics, with a particular emphasis on how language and languages are implicated in issues of social (in)justice.
Our main areas of interest include: Language, Gender and Sexuality; Language Learning and Teaching; Deaf Studies; Global Englishes; Critical Discourse Analysis; Language and Education; and Accents and Dialects. Our research informs and is informed by our teaching, and has local, national and global impact.
The principal platform for our research is the Centre for Language and Social Justice Research. We also supervise postgraduate researchers and sponsor a Student Colloquium Series.
