The DELC Research Seminar Series (DRSS) encourages collaboration and co-production between staff and students across European Languages and Cultures and beyond.

Each series is designed on a transversal exploration of a common theme, for example Decolonising Minds and Methods (2021 to 2022).

Typically, each event consists of:

  1. a workshop co-produced by staff and students
  2. a seminar presented by a guest speaker
  3. a roundtable discussion led by respondents​​​​​​

In brief: A one-day workshop organised by the Association of University Professors and Heads of French (AUPHF), co-sponsored by the Society for French Studies and the French Embassy. Focusing on changing mindsets and rethinking the value of languages in a time of crisis, the event brought together stakeholders from Universities, Schools and Cultural Institutes to celebrate and share positive examples of French and Francophone teaching of language and culture. The event culminated with a roundtable discussion on advocacy, lobbying and policy making.
