This talk is about why we can’t ever ‘just’ translate, and why translation is a question of justice. Drawing on research with the police, immigration and border agencies, social workers, medics, international organisations and NGOs over two decades, Prof Joanna Drugan from UEA's School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies will show why language rights are human rights, and consider what this means for communication in our increasingly multilingual societies.

Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy these open public lectures and there is a chance to meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.

These lectures are free and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night!
