Language and Literature Symposium
EXCITE OR EXIT: The Relevance of Language and Texts in today’s GLOCAL context
Organised by the school’s English Language and Literature Department, the biennale Language and Literature Symposium provides IBDP English A students a thought-provoking platform to explore real-world workings and functions of language and text types in various industries.
With its focus on awareness and appreciation of various text types, students will have an opportunity to meet and engage with practitioners in various industries and explore language in a particular cultural context and understand how language reflects and affects issues concerning gender, community, power, bias etc.
This year’s Symposium theme “EXCITE OR EXIT” considers the relevance of Language and Texts in today’s GLOCAL context and incorporates a special segment on language in entertainment with Mr Prem Anand, Head writer of Mediacorp’s Emmy nomination production ‘The Noose’ and local singing duo Jack & Rai.
