The Heritage Language 2 Consortium (HL2C) is directed by Professor Patrick Rebuschat (Lancaster), with Professor Cristina Flores (Minho) serving as Vice Director.

The Consortium’s Steering Committee is the main decision-making body of the Consortium. This committee has representatives from each partner institution and meets regularly to discuss and oversee the implementation of our objectives.

We also have a Scientific Advisory Board, which we use to discuss our overall strategy and future directions to take.

Our members and how to join:

The most important part of the HL2C is our community of students and scholars.

If you study or work at one of the HL2C partner institutions, you are a member by default. Welcome aboard! If you would like to get more involved, simply message the Steering Committee representative of your institution.

If your institution is not a signatory of the Memorandum that established the Consortium, you can still join us, but as an individual member. Please send a message to, and we will be in touch.
