This issue of Multilingual Margins is the outcome of a postgraduate workshop entitled “Multilingualism in Transformative Spaces” (24-25 March 2016) and a follow-up writing retreat in Fish Hoek two months later (20-22 May 2016). The workshop was jointly hosted by the Centre for Multilingualism and Diversities Research, the Linguistics Department at the University of the Western Cape, and the Linguistics Department at Ghent University (see attached program). It was generously funded by the Belgium Technical Cooperation (BTC) and endorsed by the Department of Higher Education. We would like to thank Patrick de Bouck for his generosity and encouragement through all stages of planning and implementation.
