Research groups

Plural is organised into research groups that enable collaboration between the researchers of the University of Tampere and researchers from other universities in Finland and abroad. Collaboration between researchers of language, translation, literature, and culture as well as other sciences provides an opportunity to examine social shift, change, and movement.

Each of the research groups is introduced on their own page that includes description, members, projects and publications of the group. More information on ongoing and finished projects can be found on the Projects menu.
