‘Our languages’: exploring collaborations in Language Education

28th September 2019 - Lancaster University - 9:30 - 16:15

This ‘think tank’-style conference, organised by Dr Elena Polisca and Sascha Stollhans (Languages & Cultures at Lancaster University), is part of a project that explores cross-sector collaborations in language education in the UK. Primary and secondary teachers, academics, other language professionals and policy makers are invited to discuss ideas to tackle the ‘language crisis’ in the UK, and explore potential cross-sector collaborations. The event will result in the publication of open-access position papers with recommendations for future developments in British language education.

The project and conference is funded by the "Language Acts and Worldmaking" strand of the AHRC Open World Research Initiative.

Attendance is free, but registration is required by 16 September 2019.

You can find full information on the conference website.

Le banquier et le citoyen : l'Europe face aux crises financières

30th September 2019 - The European Bookshop - 19:00 - 21:00

The European Bookshop and Génération.s invite you to a conversation with

Michael Vincent

who will be talking about his book

Le banquier et le citoyen
L'Europe face aux crises financières
Published by the Fondation Jean Jaurès

or Eventbrite

In this brief and accessible essay, Michael Vincent explains the workings of the financial services industry, as well as its place and impact in our societies. Offering to make the world of finance more transparent, Michael Vincent's aim is that all citizens be better informed in order to feel more involved by what is at stake when it comes to regulating the industry. Indeed, access to this financial world appears too often limited to a certain elite, when it should feature more prominently within the political and social debate.

The talk with be held in French and English to suit the audience's linguistic needs.

L'auteur : Ingénieur de formation, Michael Vincent a commencé sa carrière à la City. Il enseigne également la régulation financière et l’histoire des crises à l'Université Sorbonne / École polytechnique et contribue à divers projets politiques.

Le livre : Dix ans après la crise des subprimes, alors que l’euro fête ses vingt ans, les mécanismes mis en place au niveau européen sont-ils suffisants pour faire face aux risques d'une nouvelle crise financière ? La régulation est une affaire trop sérieuse pour être laissée aux seuls banquiers, juristes et économistes et les citoyens ont, eux aussi, le droit de se forger une opinion. C'est le sens de cet essai : en démystifiant la finance, en analysant les événements financiers les plus marquants, en apportant données, témoignages et anecdotes, Michael Vincent rend visibles les dynamiques qui font tourner le carrousel infernal, afin que soient tirées toutes les leçons des dix dernières années.

Riveting Germans: After the Wall

26th November 2019 - The British Library, London NW1 2DB - 19.00 - 20.30

Rosie Goldsmith for BBC Radio at the Berlin Wall, November 1989

An evening of riveting German literature with the Georg-Büchner prize-winning author, poet and essayist Durs Grünbein, German Book Prize winner Julia Franck, author of The Blind Side of The Heart, and Nino Haratischvili, author of The Eighth Life, hailed as ‘the book of the year’ in Germany.

They are joined by translators Charlotte Collins, Karen Leeder and Ruth Martin to discuss the state of German prose, poetry and translation 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and celebrate the launch of The German Riveter magazine.

Expect a lively discussion about what’s worked for UK readers, what hasn’t? And what was the impact of the East-West divide on its authors?

The German Riveter explores all these issues and features literary luminaries, from Jenny Erpenbeck to Julia Franck, Durs Grünbein to Jan Wagner – and of course Nino Haratischvili herself, who tells her own remarkable story, from Georgia to Germany.

The evening is hosted by Rosie Goldsmith, director of the European Literature Network, creator of The Riveter, the magazine with the ambition to make European literature popular and accessible across the UK. Rosie also has her own tale to tell: a German linguist who began her career at the BBC at the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago.

In collaboration with the European Literature Network, the British Council, Goethe-Institut London, Frankfurt Book Fair and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany London.
