Friday, 2 September 2022

3pm to 6 pm (Helsinki time)

NEaT’s annual seminar is back, this year on accessible language (and can you spot the theme behind the word cloud)?  http://nordicedit.fi/?p=1119

Nordic Editors and Translators invite you to the 2022 English as a Lingua Nordica (#ELN2022) seminar. The ELN series highlights the ways we can use language to contribute to a just society. This year, we focus on inclusive language. The main speaker is Hisayo Katsui, associate professor in disability studies, who will talk about theories of disability studies and how they apply to us in working with text as language professionals. Afterwards, we will have a hands-on workshop on web content accessibility by Pauliina Baltzar and Maija Hirvonen. Coffee and a light snack at the break are included in the price.

Afterwards, join us at the Fat Lizard restaurant in Herttoniemi at 7 pm to continue the discussion. Let us know if you would like to reserve a place for dinner when you RSVP. The Fat Lizard meetup is not included in the price.
