Monash Postgraduate Conference

I’m at the first Monash Postgraduate Linguistics Conference this morning. I’ve heard about language maintenance for Indonesian families in Melbourne, 19th century letters written in Pennsylvania German, and folklinguistic concepts in Australia (amongst others). But the best paper so far was about linguistic constructions of authenticity in Pittsburgh and Malang (Indonesia)- anyone who can include mullets in a linguistics talk gets my vote. But I should declare my interest: this speaker is one of my students, so I might be biased. Overall, it’s great to see a good turnout for this event.
