Our research is characterised by an interest in the global dimensions of language-based study, including Hispanic, Lusophone and Francophone cultures and societies outside of Europe; migrant and transnational cultures in Europe; multilingualism; sociolinguistics; world cinema; the cultural impacts of European expansion and colonialism; global Black Studies; and the processes of translation and transculturation implicit in all those encounters.
