Event Description:
Intersections: Collaboration and the Future for Languages and Cultures Intersections is the 4th Biennial Colloquium of LCNAU. It is devoted both to theoretical issues and to the teaching practices of tertiary language scholars. Its theme captures a wide range of discussions related to policy development, current trends in teaching and research, institutional constraints and potentialities, and approaches to reconceptualising the future of languages and cultures in Australia. By focusing on the notion of collaboration, it covers a number of questions that will enable colloquium participants to engage in vigorous debate. A major feature of the program will be a series of panels and presentations on Indigenous languages, including a keynote address, and a keynote presentation on teaching materials and creative work developed to assist with language revival programs. Other major strands within the colloquium feature innovative classroom practice and use of new technologies. The colloquium will result in peer-reviewed publications relating to one or more major themes.
