Multiling-Geo pilot project (2017-2018)

We wanted to explore cartographic and analytical challenges in the study of multilingualism in spatial dimension and, therefore, we developed a multidisciplinary project in collaboration with the Department of Geography of the University at Buffalo (PI’s Jeff Good and Ling Bian) entitled “Social spatial networks and language use in a rural and multilingual Africa context”. We applied for an IMPACT grant (University at Buffalo internal grant) and received funding in 2017 to begin these explorations.
