The Unsaid: Diplomatic Incidents

1 Jan 2012

Our choice of words (terrorist versus freedom fighter), metaphors (war on poverty), images and stories concerning religion, history and myth all have the power to frame the way in which we see the world, and to determine the way we act upon it.

Dr Biljana Scott, a linguist with a special interest in diplomatic language based at Oxford University, will speak about the importance of mastering the unsaid in international affairs and political diplomacy.

In Association with Free Word's Translation in Residence Programme.
