Rhizomes Postgraduate Conference
Since 2005, the School of Languages and Comparative Cultural Studies has hosted the Rhizomes Post-graduate Conference, which is organised by a committee of research higher degree students active in the School. Rhizomes is designed for PhD and research Master students and early career researchers, and attracts speakers from Australian and international universities.
The aim of Rhizomes is to provide an opportunity for early research scholars working within the Humanities and Social Sciences to engage in interdisciplinary dialogue on a particular theme. Previous conferences include:
- 2005 Rhizomes: Connecting Languages, Cultures and Literatures
- 2006 Rhizomes II: Re-visioning Boundaries
- 2007 Rhizomes III: Different Becomings
- 2008 Rhizomes IV: Power Violence Language
- 2010 Rhizomes V: Diaspora: Language and Place
- 2011 Rhizomes VI: Other Words, Other Worlds: Linguistic and Cultural Diversity in a Globalising Era
- 2013 Rhizomes VII: Words, Power and Identity

In recent years, papers presented at the conference have been published as monographs and in refereed on-line journals. Rhizomes: Connecting Languages, Cultures and Literatures, edited by Nathalie Ramiere and Rachel Varshney was published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2007.
