A global perspective for a global community

Language, Culture & International Education researchers come from diverse fields including applied linguistics, translating & interpreting, cultural studies, history, gender studies, & migration studies.

Contributors to Language, Culture & International Education employ knowledge of language and culture to explore humanities and social science-related questions, including multilingualism, culture and identity, intercultural communication, education, language policy and planning, forensic linguistics, and translating and interpreting.

We engage systematically with pressing social and cultural issues using a range of established theories and approaches to provide a critical perspective that problematizes historical, social, political and educational questions.
