Centre for Multilingual and Multicultural Research (CMMR)
Housed in the Department of Applied Linguistics and Communication, the CMMR brings together and promotes the best of Birkbeck’s, as well as the University of London’s, research across the spectrum of multilingualism and multiculturalism.
It makes available the results of research, and the expertise acquired, through teaching, publication, partnerships with other organisations and the promotion of civic and public debate.
In particular, it aims to contribute to debates about the benefit of linguistic and cultural diversity, focusing on London in a global context.
With this aim in mind, the Centre seeks to provide a platform for fundamental and applied research, create opportunities for new and innovative programmes of work, and national and international collaborations.
It also seeks to provide research support for postgraduates and practitioners in the relevant fields.
