The essays presented in this volume reflect the diversity and creativity of research projects currently underway in the areas of language and culture studies in Australia (as well as in other parts of the world). It provides, more particularly, a forum for interdisciplinary discussion and reveals varied approaches to interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work within the Humanities and Social Sciences—an innovative research paradigm that is increasingly recognised by the academic community. The articles in this collection originate from presentations given at the conference held on 12 February 2005 at the School of Languages and Comparative Cultural Studies, University of Queensland, Australia. This conference, which provided early career researchers with opportunities for exchange, brought together postgraduate students and academics from a variety of disciplines in universities across Australia and beyond, with a shared interest in languages and cultures. Although the research projects on which the papers are based are at varying stages of progress, the richness and originality of the ideas contained therein demonstrate the dynamic nature of interdisciplinary work being currently undertaken in language and culture studies.
