Ordinariness + Innovation

Innovation in language practice is increasingly celebrated, at times even romanticised – however this inadvertently invents the linguistic Other through exoticising the ordinary epistemologies of language. Conversely, through a contemplating of what ordinariness entails or how it is imposed, the complex natures of communities, patterns, and hierarchies are often interrogated. Continued explorations of ordinariness and innovation across ecologies, landscapes, platforms, modalities, pedagogies, disability and neurodiverse cultures are required to further critical assessments for theory and application. Considerations of languages on the periphery – indigenous and migrant, minority and endangered – including engagement with everyday policy and practice, and development of innovative technologies, are particularly timely, in light of the UN’s International Decade of Indigenous Languages (2022-2032).

The SS25 logo was designed by Korrine Bennell-Yarran of Karrak Designs. The circular arrangement of dots symbolises togetherness, and the movement of communication across the world – open, free, expressive. The neck line makes the connection between words and the rest of the body: we speak not only from mind and mouth, but also with body and heart – body language is a significant aspect amongst Aboriginal people. Red-orange ochre hues represent Australia's land and our connection to Country, powerful yet soothing, keeping us grounded.
