Australia-Germany Joint Research Cooperation Scheme: first exchange visit
Towards the end of 2017, a research team at the Department of Linguistics composed of Dr Haidee Kruger, Dr Adam Smith, Dr Deanna Wong and Dr Loy Lising, and headed by Emeritus Professor Pam Peters, was awarded a Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) grant for their joint research with colleagues from Justus Liebig University in Giessen.
Both teams will be collaborating on various projects guided by the overarching theme of Linguistic Epicentres and Supervarieties: Empirical Perspectives on World English over the next two years (2018-2019).
This collaboration officially began this February with the visit of Dr Tobias Bernaisch from Justus Liebig University who presented to the Macquarie research team their team’s planned projects over the next two years.
This April, Pam Peters returns the favour with her visit to Giessen to present to their research team our planned projects in the next two years.
