About us

The MOSAIC Group for Research on Multilingualism was established within the School of Education in April 2008 to provide a forum for the development of new, interdisciplinary lines of enquiry related to bilingualism/multilingualism, multilingual literacy, bilingual education, second language learning and contemporary discourses about linguistic and cultural diversity. Members of the Research Group have been at the forefront of the development of these fields of research in the UK and internationally, through their empirical work and through their contributions to theory-building, and they have been particularly successful in attracting research funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

The MOSAIC Group for Research on Multilingualism welcomes links with other scholars, nationally and internationally. Each year a small number of academics are guests of MOSAIC in the School of Education and the aim is to continue to develop networks and relationships through these and other research links. For those interested in visiting Birmingham, please read the guidance on visiting scholars.
