Lost for Words

29 November 2013

On 26 November Robin Aizlewood attended the launch at the House of Lords of the British Academy’s latest report on languages Lost for Words to which he had been invited to contribute whilst Director of SSEES. 

The School is listed among those consulted. The report notes the important contribution of the language-based area studies centres of which the UCL SSEES-led CEELBAS is one. One of the key recommendations is the need for support of vulnerable languages.
