CEYLON SOCIETY OF AUSTRALIA - MELBOURNE CHAPTER


At our next meeting
DR NIRU PERERA

will present an illustrated talk on

 

Talking Tamil, Talking Saivism in Australia: language and religious maintenance in the
Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora


When we talk about Sri Lankan languages in the Australian context, it is important to recognise that language is in a constant state of change. Most of us will have experiences of losing some language through migration and when it comes to passing language on to the next generation, we can see that young people tend to use their heritage languages in different ways to the first generation.

Based on Niru’s research in a Tamil temple in Australia, this presentation will highlight how Sri Lankan Tamil teenagers use the Tamil language in the temple space. Niru will explore questions about what it means to keep a language alive in the present day, how we might expect a language like Tamil to change in Australia, and how language maintenance intersects with religious and cultural maintenance for Sri Lankan Tamil Hindus.

Dr Niru Perera who is of Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Malay heritage grew up in Fiji and Australia and currently lives in Cairns. Niru has completed a Masters and a PhD in Linguistics at Monash University. For her recently completed PhD, she conducted research on language in a Tamil Hindu temple in Australia to look at the intersection between language and religion for migrants. She continues to be a student of Sinhala and Tamil languages.

 

At the Alvie Hall, 314 High Street Road, Mount Waverley.
Free entry - all are welcome.
