The centres core is in the Philosophical Faculty, with cross-faculty links to cognitive science, and empirical educational science.
The centre investigates language and language variation in the context of migration, multilingualism, and across the lifespan – a central topic in modern societies.
The centre supports a perspective on "language, variation, multilingualism" that brings together different areas of linguistics and connects them with other disciplines.
The centre’s activities encompass a mentoring program for students who want to focus on topics of language, variation, multilingualism & who are interested in carrying out interdisciplinary research.
The centre is part of the German Network "Language, Variation, Multilingualism" that brings together research clusters from linguistics and neighbouring disciplines.
In the working papers we publish theses (bachelor, master) as well as papers of highly qualified young researchers whose research focus on the field of "language, variation and migration".
Submit your application for our mentoring programm by 03/18/2022.
