        Subject: Digital Modern Languages seminar series (launch)

We are pleased to announce a new Digital Modern Languages seminar series,
bringing together research and teaching in Modern Languages which engages with
digital culture, media and technologies. The series is aimed at raising the
visibility of digital research and teaching in Modern Languages in the UK, and
will include speakers who represent a diverse range of areas of study and
languages of specialism.

This series is launched as part of the AHRC-funded Open World Research
Initiative, and is supported by the Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community
and Language Acts and Worldmaking projects, and by the AHRC Leadership Fellow 
for Modern Languages (Janice Carruthers). The series is convened by Paul Spence 
(King's College London) and Naomi Wells (Institute of Modern Languages Research).

The series will be launched on Tuesday 21 May with a seminar on 'Points of
Intersection: Digital Modern Languages' by Professor Claire Taylor (University of 
Liverpool). The seminar will take place at Bush House Lecture Theatre 2 BH(S) 
4.04 (King's College London) - entrance via Kingsway - between 6 to 8pm, and 
includes a drinks reception. Attendance is free of charge but please register 
in advance at: https://modernlanguages.sas.ac.uk/events/event/19629.

Further details of the launch and the series can be found on our website, where
