1. NEW PLURILINGUAL PATHWAYS FOR INTEGRATION: IMMIGRANTS AND LANGUAGE LEARNING IN THE 21ST CENTURY HERIOT-WATT UNIVERSITY, EDINBURGH, 27TH MAY 2016

2. WELCOME / FÀILTE / CROESO

3. ABOUT US • Nicola: PhD on Cape Verdean immigrant pupils learning Galician Languages & Intercultural Studies, Heriot-Watt University • Gwennan: PhD on teaching Welsh to adult immigrants; paving a pathway to an inclusive Welsh citizenship. School of Welsh, Cardiff University • Interest in migration in minority language contexts where migrants have two host community languages; opportunities and challenges of being ‘double new speakers’

4. MULTILINGUALISM IN THE UK • Although Britain is very obviously multilingual, its representation as a monolingual state, or one that at best tolerates a degree of regional bilingualism in Wales and Scotland, allies with the powerful ideology of ‘one nation one language’ (Simpson et al. 2015, p. 202)

5. SEMINAR THEMES • What are the opportunities and challenges for new immigrants who learn new languages? • To what extent do new immigrant speakers challenge current conceptions of integration, cohesion and citizenship? • Which steps or initiatives could facilitate a more comprehensive view of integration, cohesion and citizenship in national and minority language contexts?

6. AIMS OF TODAY’S SEMINAR • A platform to share research and knowledge in migration and language learning within and without the UK • Discuss, challenge and inspire new ideas and concepts concerning linguistic integration • Foster collaborations between participants as well as forge ways towards cross-sector partnerships in the future
