Publication project: LCNAU Editions
LCNAU is currently involved in discussions around establishing a publication arm in partnership with a recognized commercial/academic press. It is intended that this partnership will enable LCNAU to publish, in open access, its own peer-reviewed colloquium publications, as well as monographs, edited volumes and essays by our members.

A New Publication from LCNAU
Jean Fornasiero, Sarah M.A. Reed, Rob Amery, Eric Bouvet, Kayoko Enomoto and Hui Ling Xu, eds. 2020. Intersections in Language Planning and Policy: Establishing Connections in Languages and Cultures. Bern, Springer.
This volume encompasses the range of issues encountered by language scholars who teach and research in departments of languages and cultures within the higher education system, predominantly in Australia, but touching other universities worldwide. Related studies on language planning, methodology or pedagogy have focused on one or more of these same issues, but rarely on their totality. The international and local studies featured here focus on language planning, new pedagogies and language reclamation and link to meeting points and commonalities. They show that language scholars are increasingly finding themselves on common ground as they tackle issues of policy and practice affecting their field, whether within their institutions, within the tertiary system, or within the framework of government policy.
This volume, which is based upon a selection of peer-reviewed papers from the LCNAU colloquium of 2017, along with additional commissioned contributions, is due to appear in September 2020. See https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030509248
Previous Publications from LCNAU
Two sets of conference proceedings were published in 2012 and 2014 respectively, following LCNAU’s first two National Languages Colloquia held at the Univerity of Melbourne (2011) and the Australian National University (2013) respectively. Details of the two resulting volumes are as follows:
- Hajek, J., Nettelbeck, C., & Woods, A., eds. 2012. The Next Step: Introducing the Languages and Cultures Network for Australian Universities. Sydney: Australian Government Office of Learning and Teaching.
- Travis, C., Hajek, J., Nettelbeck, C., Beckmann, E., & Lloyd-Smith, A., eds. 2014. Practices and Policies: Current Research in Languages and Cultures Education. Sydney: Australian Government Office of Learning and Teaching.
Inclusion in the proceedings was the result of a selective and fully-refereed process. Both volumes are available for purchase. Only a small number of hard copies are left in stock – you can order yours by clicking on either of the links below. Alternatively, individual chapters are available through these links for free download.
