Multilingualism, discourse and communication

Who are we?

MIRCo (Multilingualism, Social Identities, Intercultural Relations and Communication) is a consolidated international and interdisciplinary research center, 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.

We count on national and international researchers, sociolinguists, discourse analysts, anthropologists, social psychologists, and different working languages (Spanish, Catalan, French, English…) and from different backgrounds, most of us are women, and we work from different universities: Autonomous University of Madrid, Complutense University of Madrid, Castilla la Mancha University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Toronto University.
