First Monash University Postgraduate Conference on Theoretical and Applied Linguistics
Thursday, July 1st 2010
The Language and Society Centre is proud to have hosted the First Monash University Postgraduate Conference on Theoretical and Applied Linguistics. This conference featured the research of postgraduate linguistics and applied linguistics students from Monash University and other Australian universities.
This unique conference provided an opportunity for postgraduate students to present their research in a supportive and constructive environment. The event was organised and run entirely by a committee of Monash University postgraduate students. The aim of this conference was not only to present emerging research in the area of linguistics, but also to foster links between higher degree by research (HDR) students in a period of study which is often isolating.
This inaugural event was international in terms of topics, languages and participants. Presentations will address myriad topics representing the cutting edge of language research in theoretical and applied linguistics. The topics included language use in traditional settings as well as in the mass media and as computer-mediated communication. These topics explore a number of languages including English, Japanese, Indonesian, Irish and German.
