Welcome to the website of the Centre for Research on Language and Culture Contact, the bilingual research unit of Glendon College, York University.The main goal of the CRLCC is to foster innovative and collaborative interdisciplinary research on language and language- related areas among its members across academic and research units. We recognize the sociopolitical relevance of language-related research in a multilingual and multicultural country such as Canada and in the context of increased internationalization. The CRLCC aims to play a key role in nurturing and promoting research in this important area, and in so doing enhance recognition of the field and its key role in broader discussions about language and culture within and beyond Glendon College and York University.

The CRLCC  offers a space where emerging and well-established researchers have a variety of opportunities to become acquainted with each other’s work, with the work of international visiting researchers, and more generally with research on language and culture contact in the wider community. The CRLCC’s opportunities and resources include: a) lectures, workshops and conferences; b) an online database of publications and media; c) space (a classroom with a small specialized library and a computer lab). York and Glendon scholars, associate members and student members are encouraged to learn about and become involved in the various and ongoing CRLCC activities and initiatives (e.g., research, editorial, events).
