See one or two of you there?


An international conference on Disciplinarity, Knowledge and Language .
University of Sydney, December 8-10, 2008

The issue of disciplinarity is becoming increasingly salient.
Questions of how differences in the structures of intellectual fields
and curricula help shape educational experiences and outcomes are the
focus of studies across a variety of disciplines using a range of
approaches. This symposium aims to bring together scholars and
practitioners engaged with these issues from different disciplines,
primarily systemic functional linguistics, the sociology of education,
and education studies.

<>Plenary speakers:
Rob Moore, University of Cambridge
Peter Freebody, University of Sydney
<>Joe Muller, University of Capetown
Jim Martin, University of Sydney
Parlo Singh, Griffith University
Karl Maton, University of Sydney
Kay O'Halloran, University of Singapore
Fran Christie, University of Sydney
Susan Feez, University of New England

Papers also from the UK, Singapore, South Africa, France, Australia,
USA and Denmark.

The symposium builds on and extends the highly successful Reclaiming
Knowledge symposium held at the University of Sydney in December 2004
that gave rise to Language, Knowledge and Pedagogy (Christie & Martin,
eds 2007, Continuum Press) - shortly to be also published in paperback.
