Language and religion

Niru Perera was interviewed by the Tamil radio group at SBS recently about her work on language practices in a Hindu temple in Australia; you can listen to the interview here. (Don't be scared off – although she introduces herself in Tamil, for most of the interview, Niru speaks English)

 

Related to this, the Language and Society Centre is hosting a seminar in memory of the distinguished scholar of language and religion, Professor Tope (Sky) Omoniyi. (Sky was one of the examiners of Niru's thesis.)
