Language and Societal Challenges: the Role of Higher Education

With the title ‘Language and Societal Challenges: the Role of Higher Education’, the European Language Council (ELC) held its Annual Forum at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan in early December. The Department of Translation and Interpreting at Comillas is a full member of the ELC and attended this conference to learn about the latest developments in multilingualism promoted by this official organization which is supported by the European Commission and composed of language experts from many prestigious European universities.
The new President of the ELC, Dr. Manuel Célio Conceição from the University of the Algarve, presented the new structure of the organization and the three new working groups created to analyse the current linguistic situation in the European Union: Language and Science, Language and Education and Language and Rights. Lecturers from Comillas will be actively participating in each group and will keep you informed via this blog and the departmental Twitter account.
