The Dictionary of Invisible Culture
Language to explain the confusing and complicated

Saturday, 29 August 2020
from 2.00pm to 5.00pm, on Zoom
This practical, skills-based workshop will focus on using common English words that translate clearly into other languages to paraphrase and to explain complex cultural concepts. It will explore common issues in breaking down concepts for learners at different levels and from different cultural perspectives. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your understanding, to practise and to share ideas. This workshop will provide you with language and skills you can use in your classroom to foster a greater understanding of Australian culture.

Presenter: Dr Lauren Sadow 
Lauren Sadow completed her PhD at the ANU in 2019, creating The Australian Dictionary of Invisible Culture for Teachers. Her research focuses on the semantics and pragmatics of language, and how invisible culture can be better incorporated into both language classrooms and dictionaries for language learners. She works as a sessional lecturer at the ANU, teaching Cross-Cultural Communication.
