Place: Campus Walferdange, Room Montessori

Given the historical trajectories and present-day configurations of multilingualism in Europe as a whole and the ways that multilingualism currently is being managed by institutions and experienced by individuals in different European states, the European context provides a fruitful site to explore questions situated at the cutting edge of sociolinguistic inquiry and, in particular, research on language policy and multilingualism.

The broad objective of this workshop is to advance knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms of language policy as well as the ways that social actors experience multilingualism in relation to the broader context of Europeanisation, globalisation and mobility.
