Lancaster Words: Breaking the Language: Shameless Multi-lingual Authors

Waterstones, King Street, Lancaster LA1 1JN
Lancaster Words: Department of English & Creative Writing, Lancaster University


A group of authors will discuss the (ab)use they inflect upon language. Sometimes, grammatical rules cannot accommodate the variety and richness of our multicultural world, and that is why these authors are shamelessly mixing up vocabularies and structures to show complex and unique characters to their readers.

They will share their experience of living surrounded by different languages and how this has affected their creative process. They will also discuss how their original use of language challenges many of the cultural stereotypes associated with genre.
