报告人：英国华威大学Anthony J. Liddicoat教授
In a world where higher education is increasingly internationalised, questions of language use and multilingualism are central to the ways that universities function in teaching, research and administration. Contemporary universities find themselves in complex linguistic environments that may national level language policies, local linguistic diversity, an internationalised student body, increasing international collaboration in research, increased demand for the use and learning of international languages, especially English. This presentation will analyse how universities are responding to complexities of linguistic diversity. It will examine the ways that universities’ language policies respond to linguistic diversity in various aspects of universities work, including teaching, research and administration and the tensions involved in language choices between monolingual and multilingual practices.
