Researching multilingualism – ESRC RDI project at MOSAIC Centre, University of Birmingham
We are writing to you to share with you details of a 5-day residential course on Researching multilingualism that we are running here in the MOSAIC Centre for Research on Multilingualism, School of Education, University of Birmingham, from April 4th to 8th, 2011. Do please pass on these details to anyone who you think might be interested in participating. The original deadline for applying was January 28, 2011 but this has now been extended till February 15, 2011.
This is the second of two residential courses that we are running as part of a three year project, which has been designed for Ph.D. students and early career post-doctoral researchers and which is focusing on research methodology. The project began in May 2010 and will run till April 2013 and it has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) under its Researcher Development Initiative (RDI) programme. Details of the course are attached, along with an application form, and details of the wider project are posted on the MOSAIC website:
One of the aims of the wider project is to build a network of researchers who are interested in the specific challenges of developing research methodology for the study of the new multilingualisms of the twenty first century.
Beyond April 2011, we will be organising a series of one-day seminars, on different topics, in different areas of the UK: in the north and south of England, in Scotland and in Wales. There will also be a Master Class by Monica Heller in May 2012 and then we will be hosting a final conference here in Birmingham on the teaching of research methods in the field of multilingualism. The title of that conference will be: New times, new multilingualisms, new research methods.
