Wednesday 1 May 2024

Crowne Plaza Hotel

The award-winning US academic offers a commanding view of the unprecedented spread of English and the far-reaching effects it has on global and local politics, economics, media, education, and business. From the inner workings of the European Union to China's use of language as 'soft power' in Africa, she draws on a wealth of research to tell the complex story of English - the world's lingua franca. Professor Salomone has lectured internationally and published extensively on education law and policy and children's rights.
