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.
