MEITS panel at The Society for French Studies 2017 Conference in Durham

Members of strands 2 and 3 working on sociolinguistic approaches to multilingualism in French and francophone contexts presented their research as part of the Society for French Studies’ annual conference in Durham on the 4th of July, providing an opportunity to publicise the MEITS project in the wider academic community.

Wendy Ayres-Bennett and Janice Carruthers began the panel with an overview of the project and the work being carried out in strands 2 and 3. Postdoctoral research fellows Daniel McAuley and John Bellamy presented findings from fieldwork with teenagers in superdiverse urban contexts in France and multilingual speakers in Luxembourg respectively, while PhD student Merryn Davies-Deacon spoke on the presence of standard and non-standard Breton on the internet. Questions from the audience encouraged the consideration of wider contextual issues, relating in particular to the domains of music and film.
