MIME First Doctoral School
Mobility And Inclusion In Multilingual Europe Interdisciplinary Perspectives
And Research Methodologies
31 May 2016 — 3 June 2016, Osijek, Croatia
The 2016 MIME doctoral school aimed to provide doctoral students and postdocs added value beyond regular PhD programmes by allowing them to set their research projects in multilingualism against a wider backdrop of interrelated theories and observe them under different methodological looking glasses. The school challenged them to question and tested widely established research practices in order to better fine-tune and sharpen their research perspective.
The central ideas of the MIME 2016 Doctoral School were promoting the interdisciplinary ethos of the MIME project, expanding and deepening student understanding of the multifaceted issue of multilingualism, and enhancing the interaction between senior and junior researchers. The ultimate goals of the doctoral school were to inspire quality research, ensure reliable and relevant research findings resulting from the project, and achieve a wide dissemination of MIME results both within and beyond the MIME project itself.

The school accommodated 11 doctoral students and postdocs who presented their research projects, plus additional 3 students who attended and took active part in the discussions.
The doctoral school had dual focus, each addressed by three instructors:
Focus on tools, concepts and methods anchored in one of the participating disciplines of the project but applied to a MIME-relevant question, e.g. as addressed in the work of a MIME Task, thus exposing to, and encouraging, interdisciplinary work
Focus on cultural, historical, philosophical perspectives that can lend more breadth and depth to the research work of doctoral students, independently of the specific topic of their own research
Topic 1.1
Geographical Scale: Mobility, inclusion and multilingualism as multiscalar processes

Modelling long term dynamic evolution of language use
Topic 2.1
Language and political identities: a reassessment

Assoc. Prof. Virginie Mamadouh (Universiteit van Amsterdam)
Prof. Bengt-Arne Wickström (Andrássy-Universität Budapest, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)
Prof. Peter Kraus (Universität Augsburg)
All participants were issued a certificate of attendance and awarded 3 ECTS credits for active participation.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme under grant agreement No. 613334 (Project MIME).
