Highfield House A02
Wednesday 10th April 2019 (17:00-18:30)

This year marks the centenary of the inclusion of language as a human right in international treaties.  Has this been an effective approach to linguistic inequalities?

Prof. Doug Kibbee is a world expert on the relationship between language and law and questions of linguistic rights and inequality. A French linguist by training, he has also published widely on matters of translation.

Part of a series of five public lectures by our Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor. For details of all the lectures visit
