LCNAU Seventh Biennial Colloquium

Looking back, moving forward:
New directions and challenges in languages and cultures

The Languages and Cultures Network for Australian Universities (LCNAU) was established in 2011 and its first national colloquium was held in Melbourne in that year. 2022 takes us full circle as the colloquium returns to its inaugural hosting city.

This year’s event provides us, as academics, scholars and educators, with a timely opportunity to reflect critically on the many changes, challenges and innovations that have occurred during that time, and how they have shaped what we do and who we are. It also provides us with an exciting opportunity to share experiences and to explore where we are heading next and what we can achieve - not just with respect to research and teaching, but also in terms of our contribution to the humanities and social sciences more broadly.

We look forward to welcoming colleagues back to Melbourne and having the opportunity to reconnect face to face.
