In the wider University, we regularly collaborate with researchers attached to the School of Education’s Centre for Language Education Research and were involved in the ETHER: Ethics and Aesthetics of Encountering the Other, New Frameworks for Engaging with Difference project. We also collaborate with researchers working in interfaith relations and peacebuilding attached to the Centre for Religion in Public Life.
Beyond Leeds, we have a strong connection with the International Association of Languages and Intercultural Communication.
