Publication Announcement

LCNAU is delighted to announce that a new book, which is of the greatest interest to our membership, and to all those who follow the history of languages policy in Australia, has just been published by Springer.  Entitled Languages other than English in Australian Higher Education: Policies, Provision, and the National Interest, its author is our colleague, Dr Jennifer Baldwin, of The University of Melbourne. She provides a thorough analysis of past achievements and failures, and a well informed critique of the rationale behind past policy choices and directions, at a crucial time when languages policy needs to be returning to the national agenda. Further information can be found at:
