Presenting at the Languages of London family festival, 3rd November 2018

On Saturday 3rd November, I’m giving a talk entitled ‘Me atell him in Hinglish voice’, which will look at code-switching, the practice of changing how we speak to suit the situation, in work by London-based poets from the Caribbean. This is part of the Languages of London family festival, a two-day celebration of the many languages that have been spoken in east London. The venue is the Museum of London Docklands, No. 1 Warehouse, West India Quay, London E14 4AL. All activities, including my talk, are free; a few workshops are free but ticketed (ask for tickets on arrival at the museum). My talk is at 2.30pm. The rest of the festival features an abundance of fun and educational activities for all the family, starting at 12pm and finishing at 4pm on both Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November.
