  • Konferensi Linguistik Tahunan Atma Jaya (KOLITA) 15 Universitas Katolik Indonesia Atma Jaya, Jakarta, 5 – 7 April 2017 - April 5, 2017,

    Latar Belakang
    Pusat Kajian Bahasa dan Budaya (PKBB) merupakan salah satu pusat kajian yang bernaung di bawah Lembaga Penelitian dan Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat (LPPM), Universitas Katolik Indonesia AtmaJaya, Jakarta. PKBB secara konsisten menggalang kegiatan akademik lintas bidang, baik linguistik, pengajaran bahasa, budaya, ilmu-ilmu sosial, maupun ilmu humaniora yang lain. Pada tahun 2002, PKBB berinisiatif untuk menyelenggarakan Konferensi Linguistik Tahunan
    Atma Jaya yang pertama (KOLITA 1). Ide awal untuk penyelenggaraan konferensi ini muncul karena keprihatinan para pendahulu PKBB akan minimnya forum ilmiah untuk para peneliti, dosen, dan mahasiswa dalam bidang linguistik, pengajaran bahasa, dan budaya untuk berkumpul dan menyebarkan hasil penelitian mereka. Penyelenggaraan KOLITA 1 ini mendapat sambutan baik dari para peserta. Penyelenggaraan KOLITA 1 dilanjutkan dengan penyelenggaraan KOLITA berikutnya yang diadakan setiap tahun. Setiap tahunnya KOLITA dihadiri sekitar 200 orang pemakalah dan peserta yang datang dari berbagai daerah di Indonesia dan bahkan dari mancanegara.
    Pada tahun 2017 ini, PKBB akan menyelenggarakan KOLITA 15 serta menghadirkan pembicara kunci Nick Palfreyman, Ph.D. dari University of Central Lancashire, Inggris dan Jenny Zhang dari University of Caifornia Berkeley, Amerika Serikat. Selain kedua pembicara kunci, ada 4 pemakalah pleno dan kurang lebih 230 pemakalah paralel yang akan hadir untuk membentangkan makalah mereka.
    Tujuan
    KOLITA diselenggarakan dengan tujuan sebagai berikut:
    a. Menjadi forum pertemuan antara para peneliti, dosen, mahasiswa, serta pemerhati bahasa dan budaya untuk saling membagikan hasil penelitian mereka.
    b. Menjadi ajang pertemuan para peneliti, dosen, mahasiswa, serta pemerhati bahasa dan budaya untuk saling mengenal dan menjalin jaringan yang diharapkan dapat berlanjut pada kerja sama penelitian/ kajian lanjutan.

    Target Peserta
    KOLITA, panel budaya, dan pameran bahasa dan budaya akan dihadiri oleh sekitar 250 orang, yang terdiri dari pemakalah, dosen/peneliti, mahasiswa, serta pemerhati bahasa.

    Narasumber
    KOLITA 15 akan menghadirkan Nick Palfreyman, Ph.D. dari University of Central Lancashire dan Jenny Zhang, kandidat doktor dari University of California Berkeley. Selain itu, sebanyak 234 makalah akan dibentangkan dan ke 234 makalah ini dikategorikan menjadi 2 kelompok, yaitu:
    a. 4 untuk sesi pleno (abstrak terbaik dalam seleksi abstrak),
    b. 230 untuk sesi paralel.

  • Public Lecture News Media and National Images: Effects on How We Think about Countries - March 10, 2017,

    BACKGROUND

    Research across nearly 50 years has found strong support for an agenda-setting effect of the news media, in which coverage of issues impacts public perceptions of the relative importance of those issues. The news media, however, can also impact public perceptions of nations in the news. Prof. Wanta will report on a series of studies that has examined how the news media influences how people think about countries.

  • Public Lecture Constitutional Laws and Judicial Systems in Muslim Countries - March 17, 2017,

    BACKGROUND

    Constitutional laws and systems are structured differently from one country to another. This occurs also in Muslim countries where Islamic law applies and where it has developed in accordance with the situation and demands of the countries. As a result, although those countries have always tried to ensure their laws to reflect Islamic norms, their legal system differs. Prof. Lombardi will deliver a talk on the issue of constitutional laws and their influence to legal and judicial systems in some Muslim countries, including Egypt, Indonesia, and Yemen.
