Colloquium (organisation led by Engman) considers the potential of language teaching and learning as a practice of healing from collective, intergenerational, and personal trauma (e.g. McIvor, et al., 2009; Thu & Motha, 2021) and of nourishing a sense of belonging, cultivating conditions for growth. Papers examine “language as nourishment” across four contexts.
