The Language & Culture Research Group within the Language and Culture Network for Australian Universities will hold a one-day mini-conference on June 23, 2017 at the University of Newcastle, Australia. The conference is inter-disciplinary and papers are invited on the theme of 'Language & War'. We are interested in exploring the diverse links between language and war including such topics as language training for combatants; the use of language in propaganda; the language of diplomacy; and war in literature and film. Please send abstracts of less than 300 words to Graham Squires at graham.squires@newcastle.edu.au by the 2nd of June, 2017. The conference is free for all financial members of LCNAU.
