Jeffries, O'Driscoll and Evans bring linguistics into conflict studies

Lesley Jeffries, Jim O’Driscoll and Matthew Evans, represented by Lesley, gave a paper on Language in Mediation - exploring new methods, finding new patterns at the Conflict Research Society conference at the University of Birmingham in September.

Lesley says:

“The paper was well-received by the peace and conflict studies community who are overwhelmingly receptive to work in linguistics with relevance to their interests. We look forward to working with this community in the future, and will be organising a day-long symposium in 2019 to launch the Routledge Handbook of Language in Conflict which we are in the final stages of editing at the moment.”
