Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship: Multilingualism, Social Identities, Intercultural Relations and Communication. Department of General Linguistics, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain. Deadline: 14 July 2019.
MIRCo (Multilingualism, Social Identities, Intercultural Relations and Communication) is a consolidated international and interdisciplinary research group, based at the Autonomous University of Madrid (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid). Since 2000, MIRCo has been devoted to the study of multilingualism in its linguistic, discursive, social, political, economic and educational aspects, from a critical, interactional and ethnographic perspective. MIRCO seeks to obtain innovative answers, not only in theoretical terms but also regarding methods and applications, for example by addressing innovative strategies such as citizen science. Our goal is for MIRCO to become a space of encounter and connection between basic and applied research networks, at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM). The main lines of research are: Multilingualism and multilingual practices in different social áreas; speakers’ linguistic trajectories and models of speakerhood; discourse and power; intercultural communication and intercultural relations; and linguistic landscapes and the transformation of urban spaces through communicative practices.
MIRCo are looking forward to hosting postdocs with strong interest in language and society, and/or in discourse studies. The MIRCo Researh Group will provide a space for scientific exchange in which specialists from different fields coordinate and perform “frontier research.” Interested applicants should send an up-to-date CV and a brief summary of why they would like to join the MIRCO group to the contact person before July 15th, 2019.
