Ahead of the publication by De Gruyter in 2024 of their handbook on Modern Languages, MLaC Professors Andy Byford and Claudia Nitschke have taken part in an interview titled ‘Modern Languages: Remapping a Shifting Landscape’.

Conducted by Alexandra Koronkai-Kiss, Editorial Communications Manager at De Gruyter, the interview explores how the study of modern languages tackles fundamental questions including how we produce knowledge, how we present it, how we can better understand our societies past and present, and ultimately, what is it that makes us. The interview also explores how artificial intelligence tools and social media are changing our perspective on language and creating new ways of reading and consuming information.
