Flinders University, in conjunction with, the Indonesian Teachers Association of SA and the Indonesia-Australia Association of SA is proud to host the upcoming biennial national conference of the Australian Society of Indonesian Language Educators (ASILE).

The ASILE conference is the premier event for Indonesian language and culture researchers and educators across Australia. It was last held in Adelaide in 2003 and it was here in 1994 that the professional network was proposed by Flinders University lecturer, Ms Firdaus.

The conference will take place at the Victoria Square campus on Saturday 1 October and Sunday 2 October. Sessions will focus on sharing research and practice, and strengthening professional networks and collaborations.

The theme of this year’s conference, Menuju Paradigma Baru (Towards a new paradigm) is designed to encourage participants to consider where the field is going in the future and its long-term sustainability and growth.

The keynote speakers, Mr Hamish McDonald, Editor of The Saturday Paper, and Ms Leila Chudori, author and journalist at Tempo Magazine, will each give their perspectives on the conference theme.

We welcome all of those interested in Indonesian language and culture education and its future to join us.
