British Council Future of English Research Forum

As part of the wider British Council Future of English programme, we are proud to announce the second Future of English research forum which will be held at Conference Aston, Birmingham and streamed online on Friday 8 March 2024. 

This one-day event brings together researchers from four international UK-led projects, awarded a Future of English research grant, to exchange ideas, share progress and interim findings. In this event, we celebrate the benefits and share the challenges of working on large international, multi-site research projects.

The British Council is also very excited to welcome David Shariatmadari, the Guardian’s non-fiction books editor and author of Don’t Believe A Word: The Surprising Truth About Language.

This is a hybrid event, and registration is free of charge. In-person attendance is limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We look forward to welcoming you in Conference Aston or online.
