Under the motto Diversity4Research@LMU, various events highlighting the relevance of gender and diversity aspects in research will bring the LMU community together during the summer semester of 2022.

The event on 2 June deals with the topic of "Linguistic and cultural diversity" from various perspectives and provides insights into research projects based at the Institute for German as a Foreign Language and the International Research Center for Multilingualism. Topics such as migration and integration of refugees, language acquisition and language forgetting in the migration situation and the mutual influence of languages will be examined as well as language biographies of multilingual speakers and writing in several languages. Furthermore, examples from the projects will show how migrants deal with linguistic and cultural diversity in everyday life and how this contributes to their identity formation.

The event will be rounded off by a panel discussion with representatives from science, business and politics on the topic of "Linguistic and cultural diversity as an engine for social change".

Speakers:

  • Prof. Dr. Claudia M. Riehl
  • Dr. Anne Harr
  • Dr. Nikolas Koch
  • Johanna Holzer
