We have expertise in linguistics, literature, history, political science, anthropology, religion and sociology related to the countries and areas in those regions.
While we continue to pursue our scholarship in different languages and cultures around the globe, we have also begun to put particular emphasis on our own multilingual reality in Australia. By looking into the impact of cultural traditions on the perception of health and well-being in Western Sydney’s diverse population groups and by exploring archival sources of migrants' stories in their original languages, we hope to enhance the appreciation of Australia’s multilingual traditions and to achieve a better understanding of the many facets of social transformation in Australia.
