Language and Education Reading Group

Language and Education Reading Group

Join Education South Asia's Language and Education Reading Group, launched in May 2023 in partnership with The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) at the University of Oxford. The Reading Group aims to bring together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds to foster dialogue between the different ways in which language and education are studied and understood, with perspectives from sociology, anthropology, education research and policy, and linguistic and sociolinguistic studies, among others.

Find out more about the Reading Group here or join our mailing list here.
