The Centre for Applied Language Studies (CALS), established in 1997, is the largest research centre in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and brings together members of faculty, postgraduate students and researchers from the School of Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics as well as from other disciplines across the University. Applied Language Studies is about applying language to real world contexts and issues. CALS provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and the development of research projects in applied language studies across a range of languages within the University as well as serving as a focal point for national and international links in this area. Researchers in CALS are organized around three clusters: New Environments for Language Learning; Discourse, Society and Identity; and Plurilingualism and Language Policy. We hope you enjoy finding out more about CALS. Please follow us on Twitter @ulcals .
