An easy-to-miss but critical dimension of the transnational influence of scholarship emerging from Allard Law lies in its multilingual scope. Those that search for indicators of scholarly reach and impact only through English language databases or search engines might be unaware of the fact that scholars here are shaping law, and scholarship, in other places through publishing their work in languages other than English.
Alert to the fact that the global dominance of the English language forces debates to be framed in certain ways, and that some concepts and ideas defy English language translation, we are taking this opportunity to share some research stories from Allard Law with you in languages other than English.
Enjoy this series and its celebration of this too frequently obscured aspect of our international reach and impact. Read our first post in the series.
