The network “Language, Variation, and Migration” brings together research clusters, centres, and researchers in Germany who work on linguistic variation, with a focus on contexts of migration and multilingualism.

This thematic area, with its manifold links to different research domains, can particularly benefit from a cooperation of linguistic subdisciplines with each other and with neighbouring disciplines.

The network serves such an exchange across (sub-)disciplines, supports cooperations, and makes shared, overarching research foci visible.
