Plurilingual Creativity: A new framework for research in multilingual and creative practices

The focus of this chapter is on the relationship between multilingual and creative practices. In particular, the chapter expands an existing theoretical framework linking multilingual practice and creative behavior to take account of the plurilingual paradigm . The paper first briefly recapitulates the Multilingual Creative Cognition paradigm and identifies multilingual factors (such as language proficiency and age of language acquisition) shaping cognitive mechanisms underlying creative thinking. It then continues with an argument supporting the need for a broader perspective on the relationship between multilingual and creative practices. It follows this with an introduction of some of the plurilingual factors which may contribute to creative behavior (in particular, it will focus on multicultural and emotional experiences). The chapter concludes with a discussion of the applications of an extended plurilingual creativity paradigm in education and introduces the Plurilingual Intercultural Creative Keys programme.
