Learning in a multicultural society

The research group led by Professor Gunilla Holm researches the different dimensions of learning in a multicultural society. Of special interest is how cultural diversity affects the development of identities and communities within both formal learning, like school, and informal learning, like within youth- and popular culture. Questions regarding minorities, immigration, multilingualism and education are examples of research interests in this group. The research group works based on qualitative methodologies and seeks to connect cultural and educational phenomena with the development of society in general.
