(Sydney) Tue 22 Oct 6:30-7:30 PM For our Sydney-based members, or anyone who happens to be in town at the right time, ISFAR is organising an event at the Alliance Française de Sydney in October with Emeritus Professor Margaret Sankey who will be talking about AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES AND THE ARTWORK OF THE BAUDIN EXPEDITION. Please register here, and don’t hesitate to circulate the information.
(Melbourne) Mon 4 Nov 7-9 PM An intercultural dialogue: When linguistics are involved in the current French – Australian submarine project. Emmanuelle Crane is a geopolitical analyst, commentator and specialist on intercultural issues in the defense industry. She consults and advises on international relations, justice and exploring peaceful solutions to conflict. This talk will question the role of language in enhancing dialogue and focus on eliminating misunderstandings that can occur in our sensitive defence industry. English is often the accepted working language in our global working environment, but how can the French adapt when the project is due to last for perhaps another 50 years? Cover charge (includes refreshments) $25; Bookings and pre-payment essential please: Book here
