The Organising Committee at the University of Western Australia for the Australian Society for French Studies 2018 Conference is delighted to confirm the visit of Frédérique Penilla, Director of the famous Centre de Langues Appliquées (CLA), Université de Franche-Comté. Dr Pénilla will present a paper on “Environnement et pratiques immersives dans l’enseignement des langues”, and a talk on the activities of the CLA. Frédérique holds a doctorate from Edith Cowan University, and was an Attaché Linguistique at the Seoul and Rabat French embassies for a number of years, before becoming the CLA Director three years ago.
The Committee is also pleased to inform ASFS members that Nadine Gassie, one of the Conference keynote speakers, will facilitate a Master Class on the morning of December 4th. She will pass on her ‘trade secrets’ as a literary translator with thirty years’ experience in translating, amongst other authors, Australian novelists, such as Tim Winton and David Malouf. We encourage delegates to attend this free event, supported by UWA Institute of Advanced Studies. Information on how to enroll to be forwarded.
