Adelle Sefton-Rowston speaks about ACAl conference sessionAdelle Sefton-Rowston, Charles Darwin University speaks about the panel session F2 Language at Home and in the Academy: Resistance and Compromise

Languages spoken and used in the community can be radically different to that which is needed in academic situations. This is particularly true for speakers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, Kriol, Pidgin and Aboriginal English. These languages, which are essential to define ways of knowing, are also intrinsic to individual social and cultural identity. Sometimes there are tensions and difficulties with negotiating this space between academic English and home language. At other times, compromise is easy when there is a bigger picture or motivation in view.
