EUTOPIA is inviting students to submit papers for the 'Multilingualism & Diversity' student conference

The Multilingualism & Diversity Conference that will take place on July 12, 2023 is an opportunity to gain experience presenting your research to a supportive student community, deepen your knowledge and to network with peers who share similar academic interests. The deadline for submitting a draft paper (200-300 words) is April 17, 2023. 

In today’s globalised world, mobility is part of the fabric of society, and multilingual communication and cross-cultural contact part of the daily reality in all domains of human activity. At the same time, multilingualism is still not valued and often seen as a ‘problem’ or ‘threat’ to social cohesion. In this context, the second student conference of the EUTOPIA Learning Community on Multilingualism and Diversity is focused on intercultural dialogue and linguistic in/exclusion. This online conference seeks to provide students with a platform to present their work to further develop our understanding of the subject matter, gain new insights and ideas, and develop further research skills.

  • The Professional World    
    • such as: business, healthcare, the workplace, etc.
  • Global Issues
    • such as: intercultural communication, immigration, crisis communication, multilingualism in public spaces, etc.
  • Translation
    • such as: translation technology (e.g., machine translation), interpreting, audio-visual translation, etc.
