6.00 - 7.00 pm - Publish or Perish: Does it apply to us?

Presentation by Cristina Banfi, former APIBA President
You may be more or less familiar with the phrase ‘publish or perish’, but you can nevertheless probably guess that the consequences of not publishing are dire to those involved. This adage, somewhat critical in its tone, refers to the imperative to publish in order to advance careers or simply to survive within the academic world. This imperative has become globalised as have other trends in academia. You may well ask at this stage, why is this relevant to me? Does it really apply? This session will attempt to explore answers to these questions in relation to local and international higher education contexts.

7.00 - 7.30 pm Break

7.30 - 8.30 pm - Writing about What and For Whom?: Creating a space for academic production

Conversations with Lorrain Ledwith and Alejandro Parini from the School of Languages and International Studies at the Universidad de Belgrano

This informal session seeks to engage participants in a discussion about the challenges and opportunities for those who are interested in pursuing an academic career in the field of foreign language studies. The discussion will revolve around the following questions: What does an academic career involve? What is the role of academic writing? How can teaching and research help each other? How can the creation of knowledge be conceptualised as an ongoing process? What is the role of higher education institutions in promoting and encouraging the continuing professional development of their academic staff?


APIBA would like to thank Cristina Banfi for having waived her fees to support this professional development session.
