What Oceania Languages Have to Tell Us (ANU-UNC-UPF) – 24-28 october 2016

What Ocenia Languages Have to Tell Us (ANU-UNC-UPF) – 24-28 october 2016
Symposium and workshops, held on UNC Campus, 24-28 October 2016. The title is a reference, in a broader sense, to the subtitle of a book (Dying Words: Endangered Languages and What They Have to Tell us) authored by ANU Professor Nicholas Evans, one of the principal investigators of the Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, Australian Research Council, which is in partnership, for this symposium, with the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC), the Centre for New Studies of the Pacific (CNEP: University of New Caledonia) and the curriculum Langues et Cultures Polynésiennes of the University of French Polynesia (UPF), with the UPF Centre for Social Sciences in the Pacific EASTCO :

Arguing for and examplifying 1) the necessity of studying all languages, even when they are spoken within communities comprising small number of speakers, 2) the values of Bilingualism/ Multilingualism, in general and particulary in the education system. The first theme is at the heart of the wide research program established in CoEDL (see their website). The second theme takes further what has emerged from previous encounters, held in Noumea in 2010 (Academy of Kanak Languages, University of New Caledonia, Agora-SHS: Multilingual School system within Pacific communities), in Sydney in 2015, in Canberra in 2016 (ANU, French Embassy: Symposium on Bilingualism and Multilingualism in Schools in the Oceania-Pacific-Region).

It is also an opportunity to develop further the linkages between ANU and UNC. That is the reason why the program EHESS@ANU – Pacific Dialogues was keen to promote an initial proposal and is part of the event. The Australian colleagues coming to this symposium are all able to speak French and have accepted to present their works in French, thus enabling the largest possible number of New Caledonian participants to benefit from this event. This generosity from our Anglophones colleagues is strongly appreciated, as was the endeavour by Nicholas Evans to produce a French translation of his book Dying words ("Ces mots qui meurent…" see web site quoted).
