De-localising Dialect

Funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Collaboration with Northumbria University.

De-localising Dialect is an interdisciplinary research network, exploring new creative and critical practices for and about vernacular language art. Over three workshops held in 2019, we aim to establish an original research agenda that places ‘dialect’ and its debates at the centre of critical attention in the nexus of art, literature and sociolinguistics. We are especially interested in viewing – and ‘doing’ – dialect against its own deep associations with geographic locality and social rootedness, and attending to its qualities of disruption, experiment and autonomy.
