Researching linguistic diversity on English-medium campuses
Mobility has had a fundamental effect on our world, and for language this has meant a proliferation of multilingual encounters and language contact. Mobility affects all levels of society and all types of jobs and professions. Academia has had its share of mobility, not least because it has actively encouraged this among researchers, teachers, and particularly students, with quite remarkable success (see, for example, Erasmus: Facts, Figures, & Trends, 2014) since the turn of the millennium. The “international university” thus offers one of the most interesting settings for studying issues concerning multilingual environments. And in this respect, one of the most prolific research foci has been a body of studies exploring how international students and/or staff communicate, negotiate meaning, and reach common understandings, often involving the use of English as their common language, or lingua franca (e.g. Björkman, 2013; Jenkins, 2014; Mauranen, 2006, 2012). Additionally, studies have been carried out on university language policy and regulation (e.g. Hynninen, 2016; Soler & Vihman, 2018).

Abstract

Mobility has had a fundamental effect on our world, and for language this has meant a proliferation of multilingual encounters and language contact. Mobility affects all levels of society and all types of jobs and professions. Academia has had its share of mobility, not least because it has actively encouraged this among researchers, teachers, and particularly students, with quite remarkable success (see, for example, Erasmus: Facts, Figures, & Trends, 2014) since the turn of the millennium. The “international university” thus offers one of the most interesting settings for studying issues concerning multilingual environments. And in this respect, one of the most prolific research foci has been a body of studies exploring how international students and/or staff communicate, negotiate meaning, and reach common understandings, often involving the use of English as their common language, or lingua franca (e.g. Björkman, 2013; Jenkins, 2014; Mauranen, 2006, 2012). Additionally, studies have been carried out on university language policy and regulation (e.g. Hynninen, 2016; Soler & Vihman, 2018).
