Sponsored events

The Language, Culture and Social Connectedness in our Diverse Landscape Symposium, sponsored by the Office of Social Justice, was held during September 2010 at the USQ Toowoomba campus. This one-day symposium invited teachers, students, researchers and change agents in the community to present their studies of the linguistic, cultural and social variables that impact social connectedness in multi-cultural Australia. Further information including seminar papers and abstracts are available.
