  1. Thank you for an excellent and illuminating seminar today. All three speakers were excellent. I looking forward to the next one. So good to see the University offering events like this, and I hope USyd can become a Centre of Excellence in Indigenous Language as Joel Davison suggested, he was brilliant. Thank you
