Can research make a difference in Swedish? – Linguistic issues in internationalizing higher education.

Susanne Jämsvi, University of Gothenburg & University of Borås, susanne.jamsvi@hb.se


This research paper is about one aspect of the current internationalization, or Europeanization, of higher education of today. It addresses in particular linguistic issues in relation to or as an aspect of internationalization/Europeanization and how they are discursively constructed. Recent developments in Swedish higher education language policy texts are used as an example. Even though the ongoing mapping shows small signs of linguistic plurality, the dominant position of English is not challenged.
