Migration & Translation

  • How do increased mobility and growing multilingualism affect the needs for LCS across Europe and beyond it?
  • What practices of linguistic and cultural translation are associated with effective communication in today’s mobile world and how can LCS contribute to their development and widespread application?
  • Who are today’s agents of translation and self-translation? What private and public spaces do they inhabit? And how can they have a greater impact on cultural understanding and social integration?
  • How can LCS contribute to shaping the debate on language and migration both within the education system and, more broadly, at the level of language and cultural politics and policies?
