Please direct any enquiries you may have about the Language, Text, and Power Theme to any of the above.

Colleagues, postdoctoral researchers, and postgraduate students who express an interest in our project get added to our Blackboard organisation and mailing list and thus become participants in our theme. For an overview of current members please click here.

The Language, Text, and Power theme is designed to be open and of use to any member of the University of Reading - you can join us at any time, for a longer period of time or just for a single project: if you are interested in language-related issues, or if you think that your own research project would benefit from an additional, language-focused facet, please do get in touch and discuss with us!
