In Other Wor(l)ds is the final seminar of the project Multilingualism and Diversity as a Resource in the Cultural Field, part of Norden 2020. How can we recognize the new Nordic resources that remain unknown due to different language barriers? What kind of new skills and policies can we learn from our Nordic neighbors in the field of lingual diversity?
