Hinglish Workshop 2015 – Recordings


‘Hinglish: Social and Cultural Dimensions of Hindi-English Bilingualism in Contemporary India’

Following upon a successful workshop at Sarai-CSDS in August 2014, the Hinglish Workshop 2015 was organised at SOAS, University of London on 27-28 May, 2015. The workshop sought to continue our exploration of the new porousness of Hindi and English in everyday and cultural practices and the relationship between language choice/use and social, cultural and political imaginaries.
