From November 14-18, 2022, the Faculty of English at UAM held the third edition of its annual seminar series "Language of Empowerment" as part of the International Week for Equality and Inclusion. The event was an opportunity to present the dangers of various forms of discrimination and a chance to speak in the discussion on the importance of values such as equality and acceptance.
"Language of Empowerment" consists of five 45-minute lectures in English or Polish. Two of them in English are available on the Faculty of English YouTube channel:
- Opening of the event: Prof. UAM Dr Joanna Pawelczyk, Dean of the Faculty of English at UAM
- Dr Katarzyna Bronk-Bacon, Faculty of English at UAM: Eighteenth- and nineteenth-century epistolary lessons on ageing and old age
- Prof. Tomasz Wicherkiewicz, PhD, Faculty of Neophilology UAM: Language policies as tools of empowering marginalized language communities
