Impact and Knowledge Exchange

Research in Modern Languages benefits individuals and organisations both locally and globally. Like all research in the Humanities, our work makes an important contribution to the cultural life of Scotland and the UK, but the international scope of our work means that we can also connect with those countries whose cultures we study. This cross-cultural, or inter-cultural perspective is what makes research in Modern Languages unique. Here we feature some of our ongoing projects which show in the very different ways our positive impact on the world outside academia. Researchers across the School work with local schools and cultural practitioners, and also with communities much further afield in Mexico, Russia, and South Africa, for example. These pages highlight some of the activities taking our academic research into the wider world. It is always a two-way process as  we benefit profoundly from the input of all those we work with.
