Our distinctive combination of subjects gives the School of Languages and Social Sciences a unique perspective on language and society, both in their own context and in relation to each other. The school is a closely integrated, innovative, multilingual and multidisciplinary School with an international outlook. Our main research centres, Aston Centre for Europe (ACE), The Centre for Forensic Linguistics (CFL), The Centre for Critical Inquiry into Society and Culture (CCISC), The Centre for Language Research at Aston (CLaRA) are leaders in their respective fields.
Research by department
Staff in all areas of the School engage in collaborative research and maintain national and international contacts through LSS' research centres and projects.
These centres organise conferences and workshops, host national and international speakers and provide a forum for researchers and research students to conduct and discuss research projects.
