About the project

The project examines multilingualism and emotions (i.e., negative and positive) across different immigrant communities in Norway. It investigates immigrants’ psychosocial, neurological and physiological responses to their multilingual and immigrant experiences in various social settings (i.e. family, school, work and outside). The central focus is on the relationship between immigrants’ emotions, their language competence, language practices and socioemotional experiences. 

Researchers and sub-project(s)

Shafqat Ullah Khan (MA) is involved in the project as a research assistant, to facilitate data collection and transcription from the Pakistani community in Norway.
