The Linguistic Identities Research Group is a forum for academic staff and research students from across the School of Languages and Social Sciences with a broad interest in the role and function of language(s) in culture and society. Special emphasis is placed on multilingualism, language contact and linguistic minorities.
We look particularly at the role language(s) play in the construction of collective identities in an increasingly globalised context, including the study of:
- Traditional linguistic minorities
- Migration and language
- Cultural identities
- Translation into and from lesser used languages
- Perceptions to which other languages give rise in Britain and other societies.
Our activities include informal research discussions, seminars from invited speakers as part of the Institute for the Study of Language and Society (ISLS) programme and developing research projects.
