Meeting Description:

The 53rd annual conference of the Australian Linguistic Society (ALS) will run in an online format on Monday and Tuesday, 14-15 December 2020 (Australian time). The theme this year is Building Bridges, and in the spirit of building bridges, we are organising a multidisciplinary workshop at the conference, on the topic of bi/multilingualism and disability.

The workshop will include six 15-minute pre-recorded video presentations and a live-streamed panel discussion. The pre-recorded presentations can be accessed by conference delegates ahead of the conference, in preparation of the live panel discussion taking place during the conference dates.
