Dr Dick Vigers is a Lecturer in Modern Languages at the University of Southampton.

My MA in Cultural Memory led to a PhD thesis on the construction of the ‘last' speaker in ‘dying' languages. In addition to teaching, I then worked in the LINEE (Languages in a Network of European Excellence) Project on multilingualism in Europe (2007-2011) particularly on language policy and migration in Spain and in Wales.

Research interests

Current research interests include multilingualism and the mobile worker; language biographies; ‘minority' languages (particularly Breton and Welsh) in relation to cultural memory, semiotic/ linguistic landscapes and migration; and historical sociolinguistics.

I teach on a number of undergraduate Spanish cultural studies courses, and on MA Transnational Studies courses and MA sociolinguistics.
