ISCA Distinguished Lecturer
Valerie Hazan has just completed her first lecture tour as ISCA Distinguished Lecturer, in Chile. She gave well attended talks at the University of Santiago, hosted by the Department of Linguistics and Literature, and at the University of Concepcion, hosted by the Departments of Foreign Languages, of Spanish and the Faculty of Education. She also had research discussions with staff and students, and introduced them to ISCA. Valerie received a very warm welcome at both institutions during this successful and enjoyable lecture tour.
