The Centre for Applied Language Research at the University of Southampton is one of two research centres within the discipline of Modern Languages. Established in 2004, CALR now has more than 50 members, predominantly faculty members working in the School of Humanities/Modern Languages, as well as growing number of postgraduate researchers. The Centre has always sought to work collaboratively with other centres and institutions worldwide and regularly hosts visiting international scholars. Additionally, many of its members work closely with the Centre for Transnational Studies, which also comes under the School of Modern Languages. CALR promotes an extensive applied language research agenda, including language education policy, second language acquisition (SLA), foreign language learning (FLL) and teaching, sociolinguistics, intercultural communication and language globalisation. Emanating from the legacy of Christopher Brumfit, the founder of the Centre, CALR work has always reflected an awareness of global and local issues in language use and learning. Brumfit was renowned for balancing his concerns for the rights and freedoms of the language learner with his influential work on classroom pedagogy. Since his passing in 2006, these values have lived on in the work of the Centre.
