Testing the Limits of Linguistic Superdiversity, Stephen May, 1st February, UCL, London

This is a free event to which all are welcome.

While the recent preoccupation with superdiversity and multilingual (urban) repertoires in critical applied linguistics is a welcome development, the concept, and its application in applied linguistics, also have some significant, as yet largely unacknowledged, limitations. This presentation will explore these limitations and what might be done about them (if anything) in light of a more sceptical take on the current enthusiasm for linguistic superdiversity.
