Our fifth 'India in Focus' seminar will be presented by Associate Professor Stephen Morey - Languages and Linguistics, La Trobe University.

The border of India and Myanmar is an area of great language diversity and cultural richness. Stephen Morey has been working to study and record the languages of this area since the 1990s and in this talk will present some data about the number of languages spoken there, about their diversity and some of the challenges of recording the very multilingual situation there in a time of globalization and modernization.

------------------

The 'India in Focus' seminar series will highlight India related research at La Trobe University from all disciplines, allowing conversation and analysis on specialised topics with academics and experts.

You can choose to join us for one, two or more seminars on India.

Each seminar will have a 45 min presentation followed by 15 min Q&A.
