We are a research-focused school specialising in Modern Languages, Applied Linguistics, Translation Studies, and Intercultural Studies. Our research frequently crosses disciplinary and linguistic boundaries, and our scholarship is increasingly concerned with digital technologies, literacies, and practices in a variety of professional, academic and social contexts.
We collaborate with national and international partners, we participate in externally funded projects, we work with industry to help meet the challenges of communication in multilingual and multicultural environments, and we collaborate with the civic society to share knowledge of the many languages and cultures we deal with and to address societal issues faced by communities that are diverse, multilingual and/or multicultural.
SALIS is also home to a thriving community of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers.
