Flinders University will be the catalyst for much discussion on international matters – from the intractable conflict on Cyprus to the mass movement of refugees – when conference delegates from around the world converge on Adelaide over the next week.
Flinders will host, or participate in, a series of separate events canvassing:
Cyprus: The 8th International Conference on Greek Research will discuss the ongoing imbroglio on Cyprus along with a range of cultural, teaching and professional development issues, in an event marking two decades of Modern Greek studies at Flinders.
- Migration: The International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development workshop will examine the effects on human development of the movement of people in the Asia Pacific region.
- Teaching Italian: Secondary school teachers from around Australia will be immersed in the Italian language during a five-day residential course with the keynote lecturer, Professor Patrizia Guida from the University of Salento, Lecce.
- Marine science: The Australian Marine Sciences Association conference will hear from a number of experts on subjects ranging from the movements of sharks in the Southern and Indian oceans to exploring the future of the Coorong.
