Thanks to all who have subscribed to the blog. I know some of you want only to follow this course at a distance – no problem and you are most welcome. For those who want to participate actively, I am keen to set up ‘student’ blogs – so you can write up responses to discussion, readings, problems in your own work, etc.
Please let me know if you want a blog – I hope those who are blogging will also read each other’s blogs and help create an online community. The more you are able to discuss and debate the ideas, the more we will all get out of this experience.
The first face to face meeting will be August 9th, at Sydney University in the Transient Building, room 204, from 2pm to 3.45 (I know some of you at least will go on to attend the 4pm-5.30pm linguistics talk that is held regularly in the linguistics department at Sydney University). My course will run over 12 weeks, with a pause for the mid-semester break. As flagged, there will not be face to face sessions every week – but I’m still working on the outline, and will let you know as soon as I have a draft.
So, thanks again for your interest, and I’ll be in touch with more details on course content as soon as I can.
