The Department of Studies on Language and Culture includes a vast array of disciplines and subjects ranging from European languages and cultures to anthropology, history, philosophy, linguistics, sociology, law and economics. The sociological area of research is based on interdisciplinary team work and systematic connections with institutions (public administrations, schools, healthcare services, non-profit organisations). It concerns facilitation and promotion of social participation; cultural and linguistic mediation; forms of intercultural communication, prevention of discrimination and prejudice; production and management of conflicts; gender relations. The sociological team is well-known on a national and international scale for research, projects of intervention and training regarding children and young people and their interactions with adults, in particular in educational settings.
