*CALL FOR PAPERS: 5th Biennial Colloquium of LCNAU*

*Deadline: 30 April 2019*

*Conference: 27-29 November 2019, University of Western Australia*

The Fifth Biennial Colloquium of the Languages & Cultures Network of
Australian Universities will be held at the University of Western Australia
on 27-29 November 2019.

Confirmed keynote speakers are: Charles Forsdick (Liverpool), Joseph Lo
Bianco (Melbourne), Jakelin Troy (Sydney).

*“Exchanges: people, knowledge, cultures”*

The movement of students and staff is an inherent part of language
learning. The benefits of such exchange flow in both directions: language
learners encounter a new set of linguistic and cultural parameters through
which to make sense of the world and the ‘native speakers’ of that culture
also benefit by encountering those who are entering their language and
culture from different and often challenging perspectives. The two-way
exchange of linguistic competence and cultural knowledge – between
Indigenous and non-Indigenous, teachers and students, international
students and Australian hosts, Australians studying abroad and their
overseas hosts and contacts – is enriching to all and a key contribution
our disciplines make to building a better world.

LCNAU invites abstracts and panel proposals from scholars, practitioners,
early career researchers and postgraduate students. We especially invite
contributions relating to the following areas:

·                Indigenous languages: description, maintenance and use

·                Motivation and language learning

·                Language and culture nexus

·                Language and identity

·                Technology in teaching and learning language and culture

·                Models and approaches in teaching and learning language
and culture

·                Language testing

·                Language and society

·                Language acquisition

·                Language policy

·                Translation and interpretation
