Languaging interdisciplinarily: English at the intercultural interface

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Interdisciplinary collaboration is notoriously difficult, and knowledge flows between disciplines have been critiqued for privileging certain voices from certain contexts (geographic and disciplinary) in certain languages (e.g. English), thereby raising the possibility of epistemic injustice. English, as THE global language of our time, is at the interface of such concerns. It is also a major medium for intercultural encounters of both an interpersonal and inter-knowledging character. What happens when ideas from one discipline are brought - through the medium of English - into another? And what are the implications — for English language specialists (and especially teachers and researchers) — of the role of English in such encounters? In this talk, I will explore such questions with reference to a number of projects in which I have recently participated.
