[en] This presentation explores hybridity, multilingualism and mediation in (Higher) Education, especially when (university) classrooms become more visibly diverse and multilingual. It begins by identifying first which professional dilemmas and opportunities the diversifying classroom crates for both teachers and students. How does increasing diversity affect for example language policy, assessment, expression, and curriculum development? The paper next suggests that taking an interdisciplinary outlook might shed interesting light on these questions. In particular, insights from socioliguistics, multilingual education, social semiotics and post-colonial studies might lead to renewed thinking about traditional concepts of miedations and re-mediations. Finally, drawing on both succesful and problematic cases, the discussion explores the meanings, challenges and opportunities that arise when adopting what researchers from the South have called a pluriversal perspective, and when one substitutes a multilingual ethos and ethics of care for the more traditional monolingual, eurocentric orientation most prevalent in Western Universities.
