The Genesis of the AFMLTA and Babel and the Babel of Genesis
Vale, David
Babel, v41 n1 p14-15 Jul 2006
In this article, the author describes the genesis of the Australian Federation of Modern Language Teachers Associations (AFMLTA) and "Babel." With regard to the origin of the title of the journal, its name refers only indirectly to the Tower of Babel in Genesis. It comes in fact from the affectionate nickname that had been given to the building at the University of Melbourne that housed the various language departments in the early years of the Modern Language Teachers Association of Victoria (MLTAV). (Contains 1 figure.)
