Multilingualism and Mobility in Europe

Policies and Practices


Kristine Horner, Ingrid de Saint-Georges and Jean-Jacques Weber

How do individuals experience multilingualism and mobility in the context of Europeanization and globalisation? The contributors explore language-in-education policies and family language policies, as well as the complex interface between multilingualism and space. They provide fresh insights on key issues in sociolinguistics, multilingualism and language policy via discussion of rich qualitative data. The multiple sites analysed in the chapters are located in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Hungary and Moldova. Some of the chapters dealing with France, including one about the overseas French territory of La Réunion, are written in French.

We would like to thank Ulrike Klemmer, Jürgen Erfurt and the Peter Lang staff for their editorial support and expertise. Most of the contributions in this volume were presented at a workshop on Multilingualism and Mobility in Europe that took place at the University of Luxembourg in July 2013. Many colleagues contributed to make this event possible, and we would like to express our special appreciation to Marianne Graffé, Andrea Hake, and Solange Wirtz for their kind assistance during the workshop and beyond. The workshop was made possible by generous financial support from the Fonds National de la Recherche Luxembourg in the form of a RESCOM Exploratory Workshops grant, the LCMI (Language, Cultures, Media, Identities) Research Unit of the University of Luxembourg, the University of Luxembourg Doctoral School in Educational Studies and the Centre for Luxembourg Studies at the University of Sheffield. We also thank the Fonds National de la Recherche Luxembourg for financial support of this publication.
