Since 2011 this blog has posted news from what was back then called the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies (SOCLAS), now known as the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLC). It has published nearly 600 posts, racked up over 125,000 lifetime views and attracted more than 44,000 visitors.

From September 2017, we are taking our blogging success onto a shiny new blog within our own departmental website which will give us even more visibility and reach – please do follow us there instead!

The posts on this site will remain as a record of the activities, publications, appointments, news and views, graduate careers and year abroad experiences, and so much more that we have done and written about over the last 6 years.
