Welcome to our new Babel team members!
Babel has taken on two new members of staff, with the recruitment of a new Babel Ambassador, Hazel Price, and a new Editorial Assistant, Matthew Evans. Hazel joins our other Babel Ambassadors, Dr Erika Corradini and Dr Ana Tominc, who have helped to establish Babel in the languages and linguistics community.
Both Hazel and Matthew are postgraduate students at the University of Huddersfield, the Babel HQ. Hazel is studying for an MA in English Language, while Matthew is studying for a PhD on the portrayal of the word 'feminism' in the British press. Both are enthusiastic lovers of language and bring plenty of knowledge and experience – Hazel from her studies at University of York, and Matthew from his work on Language in Conflict.
Our new appointments reflect the continuing success of Babel, which has grown steadily since our debut issue in November 2012. Matthew and Hazel will help us to deliver an even better magazine, and also to interact in new ways with our readership and contributors.
