Was presented on: Monday 21 November 2016
Presenters: Ilsa Sharp, Catherine Schwerin, Helen Renwick

Description

The panel explored the phenomenon of globalised English and its implications for editors. Is there such a thing as ‘Standard English’? How should editors approach working with different, Other Englishes, and World English when used as a lingua franca by ‘non-native’ speakers? What are the cultural factors in this new environment? What has been the colonial contribution to these Englishes, and is colonialism still ongoing in World English?
