We inhabit a polyphonic world where many languages and literature flourish. Globalisation, technology, migration and the impact of diasporic ‘travelling tongues’ make these increasingly accessible to each other. Yet, the phenomenon of dominant languages and mono-linguistic attitudes threaten to flatten out the delightful diversity and plurality of the ways in which we speak and write. A session that celebrates the spoken word and writers from across the globe.
