BabeliUM – the name of the Language Centre of the Institute of Arts and Humanities of the University of Minho (UMinho) alludes to the myth of the Tower of Babel.

However, instead of understanding the confusion of different languages as a divine punishment, BabeliUM adopts another interpretation that emerged from Enlightenment, according to which linguistic and cultural plurality is seen as a gift and a valuable resource of this planet. With this vision in mind, BabeliUM’s mission aims at transforming the University of Minho into a multilingual university opened to the world.
