Celebrating Kristang

The Story of Kristang: Past Glories and Present Struggles

Moderator: Victor Olsen

What is Kristang and where did it come from? Is it still spoken anywhere? Why is it known by many names? Dr Bruce M. Lockhart from the National University of Singapore, together with Kristang researchers and speakers Alan Norman Baxter and Stefanie Pillai, and Kristang writer and poet Joan Margaret Marbeck will provide a vivid and exciting introduction to the language of the Portuguese-Eurasians, its history, and its current status.
