Biographical history

The Department of Linguistics was established within the Research School of Pacific Studies in March 1968. Prior to its establishment linguistic research was carried out within a section of the Department of Anthropology and Sociology. It was primarily concerned with the analysis, description and classification of the indigenous languages of Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the Pacific Islands. In 2006, teaching and research in linguistics was distributed across the ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences and the ANU College of Asia & the Pacific.
