Research & engagement
The School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics is one of the largest Schools in the Faculty of Arts. Our staff conduct award winning research in areas including creative writing, literary and cultural studies, linguistics and applied linguistics, translation and interpreting, and tourism. We’re also involved in a range of interdisciplinary projects, centres and faculty-wide focus programs. We partner with world-leading institutions around the globe; our research has had wide and significant impacts on government policies across a range of sectors and supported the development of innovative technologies. Furthermore, our staff are actively engaged with the community and arts sectors, regularly organising and contributing to public forums.
At the School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics research supervision is principally offered through the following programs:
Research centres and groups
This centre aims to provide a research platform for understandings of the physical and social impact of population growth in Australia with a specific focus on short and long term consequences of increased immigration for social inclusion as well as settlement experiences for regular and irregular migrant groups.
Engage with us
We are a diverse and flourishing multi-lingual community of academics and students from all over the world. Our researchers have a deep understanding of the history, languages and cultures of a range of geographic regions.
There are a range of ways that your organisation can engage with the School:
Contract research and consultation
Your organisation could benefit from our research on how culture informs consumer needs. We have extensive experience in both the public and private sector.
We offer a range of customised professional development programs to respond to industry needs, including short courses for translators and interpretors. Our research can also assist in developing a culturally inclusive workplace.
Expert lectures and industry briefing
Our academics are often invited by the government, public and private industry partners to present and give public lectures on their area of expertise, both nationally and internationally.
Our interns are high achieving students with current academic knowledge and research skills. Interns are a great resource for specific projects or regular operations, bringing fresh perspectives and creative solutions to your organisation.
Scholars from the School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics regularly work with partner organisations to address pressing issues. We promote social cohesion, along with linguistic and cultural diversity. The projects below provide a snapshot of our varied work in this area.
