Language of Empowerment-online series from Nov.16

The Faculty of English at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, invites you to follow an outstanding series of seminars entitled “Language of Empowerment” within the “International Week for Equality and Tolerance” between the 16th and 20th November 2020.

The organizers hope to raise awareness about the dangers of discrimination and contribute to the global debate on value of  tolerance and equality, in accordance with the UNESCO proclamation that states:
“Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. It is fostered by knowledge, openness, communication, and freedom of thought, conscience and belief. Tolerance is harmony in difference. It is not only a moral duty, it is also a political and legal requirement. Tolerance, the virtue that makes peace possible, contributes to the replacement of the culture of war by a culture of peace.” (UNESCO’s 1995 Declaration of Principles on Tolerance).

The “Language of Empowerment” at the Faculty of English AMU will feature six 45-minute lectures delivered in English (Monday-Thursday) and Polish (Friday).


All lectures will be streamed live via Facebook:
