In Other Wor(l)ds - Nordic Dimensions of Multilingualism seminar is held tomorrow, Thursday 25.10. Between 10.00-17.00 in Hanasaari. You can follow the presentations and lectures of the seminar via live streaming through this link.
In Other Wor(l)ds is the final seminar of the project Multilingualism and Diversity as a Resource in the Cultural Field, part of Norden 2020. How can we recognize the new Nordic resources that remain unknown due to different language barriers? What kind of new skills and policies can we learn from our Nordic neighbors in the field of lingual diversity?
The seminar is held in English.
The content of the seminar includes language-specific presentations of Nordic literary fields (Sámi, Kurdish, Romani and Somali languages) and discussions about policies and practices that support multilingualism in the Nordic societies. In the workshops, the participants can discuss in smaller groups e.g. questions related to multilingual library work, tools that facilitate the construction of multilingual work communities, the new needs for translation policies, the construction of a multilingual path from babies to the elderly.
