Research & engagement

The School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics is one of the largest Schools in the Faculty of Arts. Our staff conduct award winning research in areas including literary and cultural studies; linguistics and applied linguistics; translation and interpreting; and tourism. We’re also involved in a range of interdisciplinary projects, centres and faculty-wide focus programs. We partner with world-leading institutions around the globe; our research has had wide and significant impacts on government policies across a range of sectors and supported the development of innovative technologies. Furthermore, our staff are actively engaged with the community and arts sectors, regularly organising and contributing to public forums.

At the School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics research supervision is principally offered through the following programs:

Engage with us

We are a diverse and flourishing multi-lingual community of academics and students from all over the world. Our researchers have a deep understanding of the history, languages and cultures of a range of geographic regions.

There are a range of ways that your organisation can engage with the School:

Contract research and consultation

Your organisation could benefit from our research on how culture informs consumer needs. We have extensive experience in both the public and private sector.

Professional development programs

We offer a range of customised professional development programs to respond to industry needs, including short courses for translators and interpretors. Our research can also assist in developing a culturally inclusive workplace.

Expert lectures and industry briefing

Our academics are often invited by the government, public and private industry partners to present and give public lectures on their area of expertise, both nationally and internationally.

Internships

Our interns are high achieving students with current academic knowledge and research skills. Interns are a great resource for specific projects or regular operations, bringing fresh perspectives and creative solutions to your organisation.
