Investigating discourses of inheritance and identity in four multilingual european settings

Case studies in the four national contexts use ethnographic observation and interviews to investigate cultural heritage and global identities in a range of educational settings, where new and established linguistic practices connect and disconnect. Research teams in Birmingham, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Tilburg are investigating the range of language and literacy practices of multilingual young people in these four European settings, their cultural and social significance, and the way in which they are used to negotiate heritages and identities.

The Project Director is Professor Adrian Blackledge and the research team includes Professor Angela Creese and Professor Marilyn Martin-Jones.
