"Minorities, Migration, Mediation. Expressing Sense of Belonging in Multilingual Europe"

Supervisors: Prof. Goffe Jensma, Prof. Margriet van der Waal, Dr Matt Coler

What is the role of multilingual authors in minority literatures as intellectual leaders in processes of integration and segregation? To answer this question, this research aims to develop a model by comparing localised minorities (especially in Fryslân) with migrant minorities. By bringing aspects of cultural leadership into the discourse on multilingualism, this project hopes to create a hands-on understanding for the challenges of modern society.

 Keywords: integration, segregation, multilingualism, minority literature, localised minorities (especially in the Northern Netherlands)
