The Center “Language in Urban Diversity” serves as a site for networking and outreach, for researchers and practitioners, speakers, teachers, policy makers, language lovers, and multipliers. We all are the multilingual, linguistically diverse city.

We publish links to events and materials in German and English - and we are looking forward to getting in contact with you!
