Our new issue (2019/2) is dedicated to “Multilingualism in Global Age”. The linguistic diversity in European countries is rapidly increasing. The growing number of migrants and refugees raise new questions about contemporary European societies and their linguistic diversity. Although language skills are considered to be a global resource for a competitive, knowledge-based societies, not every language is given the same value. Many educational systems are not prepared for the new multilingual learning environment and the cultural diversity of students. How can schools, colleges and universities adjust themselves to the new condition and turn the new multicultural and multilinguistic environment into an advantage in a global age? In this issue weinvite you to discuss this and other language related issues in an academic environment. We particularly encourage proposals on any other aspect of the contrastive studies based on this field related to German language and literature.
Papers on the following topics related to German language and literature are welcome:
•Heritage language developtment
•Speech processing in bi-/mulitlinguals
•Trans/multilingual language use in different contexts
•Multilingualism in literacy
•Literacy in multiple languages (pluriliteracy)
•Intercultural and globalisation issues related to multilingualism.
