Located in the well-established bilingual community in the Welsh-English speaking area of North Wales, the Research Centre is organized and administered by the:
- Schools of Arts, Culture and Language
- School of Human and Behavioural Sciences
- School of Educational Sciences
The Centre has an advantage in providing easy access to bilingual people and allows an unprecedented concentration of effort on Welsh-English bilinguals as well as offering a springboard into other bilingual and multilingual communities.
Research in bilingualism (and multilingualism) draws on several disciplines, including linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, education, sociology, economics, and political science. Recent years have seen an explosion of research in this area, as a result of which our understanding of the nature of the individual bilingual/multilingual mind, of language use and development, identity construction and (re)construction, as well as of the bilingual and multilingual community, is making rapid progress.
