Reaching out to and collaborating with diverse communities across the world
Engaging with and integrating diverse international perspectives was central to CoEDL’s mission to transform the science of language into a more interdisciplinary and inclusive field. Many of the Centre’s international collaborations involved sharing language insights across fields and drawing new languages and perspectives into this research.
In its nearly 9 years of operation, the CoEDL community grew into an expansive international network. Eighteen international researchers joined CoEDL as Partner and Associate Investigators, whose expertise CoEDL shared with and beyond its community through various education and outreach activities. CoEDL Alumni deepened the Centre’s international engagement, with 43% of members taking positions overseas after their time with CoEDL.
CoEDL members also engaged with the international community by organising research collaborations and gatherings such as those highlighted below. These linkages allowed CoEDL to present its vision of the language sciences to the world; infused the Centre’s activities with new questions, energy and partnerships; and, through these interactions, ensured the calibre of CoEDL research remained world-leading.
