Diverse Societies, Common Challenges

Schools venture to Vietnam

18 November 2010
11am - 5pm Lakeside Conference Centre

This will be a one-day international conference to launch InterLanD (Aston Centre for Research in Language and Diversity)

In times of crisis, financial, ecological or social, the question of diversity can be regarded as a distraction. Are we really so different? And if so, are those differences more important than what we share? Can diversity help us to imagine more creative solutions to the challenges that we face?

This conference brings together thinkers from Sociology, Linguistics, Business and Management Studies and Policy Studies to consider the challenges that face all of us and what thinking about diversity can add to our understanding.
