About this subject
Dr Khawla Badwan - Chair of the Advisory Group
Reader in TESOL and Applied Linguistics, Manchester Metropolitan University
This new Statement is intended to take account of the development of Linguistics as a discipline characterised by considerable conceptual breadth, methodological diversity and inherent interdisciplinarity. It was developed by an advisory board of subject experts and has received considerable support and feedback from across the subject community. The Statement features the richness and innovation of our disciplinary field, as well as our commitment to EDI, accessibility, sustainability and employability. We feel very proud of the resulting Statement that truly pioneers innovation and enhancement across Linguistics programmes, with a strong emphasis on social justice. We hope that it will be a valuable resource for different audiences and contribute to a better understanding of what Linguistics is and what Linguistics can do.
