Ancestry and Language – A HKU-USyd Partnership Symposium

This 2-day symposium is an event of ‘The ebb and flow of heritage: Investigating urban multilingual diaspora’, a HKU-USydney Priority Partnership Collaboration Award project (Umberto Ansaldo and Nick Enfield, Pis; Lisa Lim, Co-I), one of whose goals is to further strong and dynamic collaborations between the two institutions.

This symposium brings into conversation scholars from Hong Kong and Sydney on the topic of heritage/ migrant/ community/ indigenous languages, drawing on the research and expertise on situations and experiences in both Greater China and Australia. We explore dimensions of, inter alia, migration, migrant languages, minority languages, indigenous languages, language acquisition, education, and language policy, with a central question of how our cultural ancestries are managed through our linguistic practices. Of particular interest are situations where ancestry is multiple, and where multilingual ecologies are involved.
