Description

Public Lecture: Hindi in Australia: The Story so Far

Hindi, one of the world's most widely spoken languages, has a firm foothold in Australia. This year's census data reveals what many in Australia's Hindi community already knew: the story of Hindi is part of the story of Australia. How shall we tell this story? From the perspectives of media, literature, and education, this panel of Hindi specialists from India and Australia will grapple with the questions, Why Hindi? And why now?

Panel Speakers:

Dr Ian Woolford is lecturer in Hindi at La Trobe University, where he coordinates the Hindi language program, and teaches courses in South Asian culture.

Ms Mrinal Pande is an Indian television personality, journalist and author, and until 2009 chief editor of Hindi daily Hindustan.

Ms Aditi Maheshwari-Goyal is Director of the Copyrights and Translation Department at Vani Prakashan.

Ms Kumud Merani is a journalist with SBS Hindi Radio.
