In early February, the Korean Studies community at ANU convened to welcome our new faculty member Dr Eunseon Kim, who joins us as Lecturer and Convenor of the Korean Language Program.
Instead of a regular welcome lunch, we held an all-day translation marathon to translate into Korean the bushfire smoke emergency and air-quality information produced by scientists at the ANU College of Health & Medicine. This critical information will be distributed at Canberra’s Multicultural Festival later in February and is available for distribution all over Australia. It was a worthwhile and meaningful welcome back to campus for the PhD students, faculty and teaching staff of the Korean Studies program at ANU.
CHL is collectively working on compiling more translations of bushfire smoke emergency and air-quality information in other languages too. Watch this space for more on this as it unfolds.
