Event description

Description

The Macquarie Multilingualism Research Group will hold a workshop to discuss the potential for research on multilingualism incorporating new data from the Australian 2016 Census. Associate Professor Jim Forrest (Geography and Planning) and Professor Phil Benson (Linguistics) will outline how census data has been used in previous research on multilingualism, in Australia and internationally, and discuss their own collaborative work on patterns of multilingualism in Sydney and intergenerational language shift in Australia. Timed to follow the first release of data from the 2016 Census in late June 2017, the workshop will be a timely opportunity to discuss the roles of census data in ongoing multilingualism research.
