Multilingualism on my mind

Head of the research group: Åsta Haukås

The main aims of the research group are to explore different aspects of multilingualism and to promote research collaboration across languages and contexts.

Principle areas of interest include the development of multilingual and intercultural awareness and identity among language learners, teacher trainees and language teachers in various educational settings.

The research group meets regularly with the aim of:

  1. Bringing together people who share an interest in researching multilingualism in education and beyond
  2. Establishing a shared set of research objectives
  3. Developing and exchanging ongoing projects and new ideas

The team of Multilingualism on my mind (MoMM) also organises open research seminars (by staff, PhD students and external speakers), as well as roundtable discussions where the members share and exchange ideas and present their research.

In March 2021, we organized the online conference MoMM with more than 300 participants from all over the globe. The next conference, MoMM2, is planned for March 2024.
