Event description

Description

Join us for a vibrant conversation in the Research Lounge (Arts West Building 148) led by visiting scholar Andreas Musolff, Professor of Intercultural Communication at the University of East Anglia and responded to by Joseph Lo Bianco, Professor of Language and Literacy Education at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education and Research Director 2012-2018 of the UNICEF Language and Peacebuilding initiative in Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand.

Together, they will share their research and current thinking with reference to key-metaphor complexes in conceptualising national identity as a body or a person, the relationship of metaphor interpretation patterns to culture-specific discourse traditions, and the potential for the creation of new metaphors of inter-ethnic communication and new nationhood.
