Meeting Description:

International Fall School Multilingualism: European and Asian Perspectives

The world in which we live is increasingly multilingual. Multilingualism in today’s modern societies requires new expertise, skills and leadership to understand and meet the challenges of linguistic and cultural diversity.

The forces of post-colonial settings, globalization and increasing levels of migration and mobility have created distinct multilingual realities in European and Asian contexts. This fall school will tackle multilingualism in an interdisciplinary fashion and compare and contrast different and complementary dimensions of multilingualism in Europe and Asia.

If you are interested in viewing language from cross-disciplinary perspectives and within a global context, this fall school is what you are looking for.
