AULLA CONFERENCE 12-16 June 2022 Larrakia Country Darwin

Secrets, Subterfuge and Silence


Charles Darwin University

The 2022 Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association’s triennial conference will be hosted by the College of Indigenous Futures, Education and the Arts at Charles Darwin University in the Northern Territory.

It may be that what draws many students and scholars to the study of literature, language and culture is to reflect on the historical, and ideological context of information, on how writing and its effects, produces a fascination with secrets. How do texts and mediums both work to withhold and disclose answers? Can anything really be completely uncovered? This conference promises to be both secretive and revealing.
