Get the Picture: Using comics in Hindi Language Teaching

CAIS - events - Tue, 2016-05-17 10:51
Event type:  Seminar Date and time:  Monday, May 23, 2016 - 16:15 - 17:15 Venue:  Room W3.03, Level 3, Baldessin Precinct Building #110, ANU Speaker:  Peter Friedlander, CHL, CAP, ANU

The use of images has been a long established practice in language teaching.  During the last year I have been experimenting with the use of online comics as a part of teaching Hindi and found that it has had very beneficial learning outcomes. In this report on practice, I shall show how I am using comics in order to promote student engagement with dialogues where the dialogue is initially presented without text but through images and sounds.

Una Stojnic (ANU, NYU): Context-Sensitivity in a Coherent Discourse: A Case Study of Modality

Philosophy - events - Thu, 2016-05-12 14:06
Thursday Seminar Date and time:  Thu, 30/06/2016 - 16:00 - 18:00 Location:  Fellows Road Law Lecture Theatre 2

The idea that communication is a form of conveying contents through mind-reading goes back at least to Locke and, with important modifications, continues to be the dominant model through Grice and Kaplan. However, whereas Locke thought communication is entirely a matter of encoding and decoding content through linguistic forms, currently it is almost universally accepted, as Grice and Kaplan would have it, that meaning is at least partly determined through non-linguistic features of utterances.

Melissa Fusco (Berkeley): Deontic Disjunction

Philosophy - events - Thu, 2016-05-12 13:58
Thursday Seminar Date and time:  Thu, 23/06/2016 - 16:00 - 18:00 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

I propose a unified solution to two puzzles: Ross's puzzle (the apparent failure of 'Ought phi' to entail 'Ought (phi or psi))' and free choice permission (the apparent fact that 'May(phi or psi)' entails both 'May phi' and 'May psi').  I begin with a pair of cases from the decision theory literature illustrating the phenomenon of \emph{act dependence}, where what an agent ought to do depends on what she does.  The notion of permissibility distilled from these cases forms the basis for my analysis of 'May' and 'Ought'.&nb

Dale Dorsey (University of Kansas): Prudence and Past Selves

Philosophy - events - Thu, 2016-05-12 13:00
Thursday Seminar Date and time:  Thu, 16/06/2016 - 16:00 - 18:00 Location:  Coombs Seminar Room A

It seems a sensible platitude that prudence commands equal treatment of one’s present and future self (or selves).  The temporal location of a particular present or future benefit, in other words, does not affect the strength of the prudential reason to bring that benefit about.  But what does prudence command when it comes to past benefits?  This question may seem moot: after all, it’s not possible to benefit oneself in the past, and hence there can be no prudential reasons to do so.  But this, or so I argue, is mistaken.  I argue that there are, in fac
