ne of the conclusions of the MIME project, with its eleven participating disciplines, is that research on multilingualism and how societies deal with it through public policy requires a deeply interdisciplinary perspective in order to do justice to the complexity of the issues at hand. This raises the question of how this interdisciplinarity can be encouraged, whether in institutions, in publication activities, in the operations of bodies that finance research and, not least, in the practices of researchers hailing from disciplines that span the full range of the social sciences and humanities (SSH).
