School of Applied Language & Intercultural Studies


Welcome to the research pages of the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies (SALIS).

We are a multilingual, multicultural research-focused school specialising in applied linguistics, translation studies, literary studies and cross-cultural citizenship education. Our research takes in European and Asian languages and cultures, frequently crosses disciplinary and linguistic boundaries, and increasingly focuses on digital technologies.

We work with industry to help meet the challenges of communication in multilingual environments. We also collaborate with civic society to share knowledge of the many languages and cultures we deal with, and partner with others in European projects e.g. in training professional translators and providing translation services.

SALIS is home to a thriving community of doctoral students.

A full list of our research publications is available here.
