Meeting Description:

The lecture is entitled: 'Diverse Englishes, intercultural communication, and 'international' universities'.

Professor Jennifer Jenkins from the University of Southampton will discuss the difference between World Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca (ELF). She will then turn to Higher Education, a context in which ELF as both phenomenon and field of research is particularly prevalent. Focussing on the UK, some of the problems and contradictions relating to English language policies and practices that exist in universities that consider themselves to be international will be considered.
