Title: Join us for a special presentation and discussion on Language and Perception
Info: How does language shape the way with think and how we live? What if you didn't have a word for right and left but instead relied on cardinal direction? What if you had no unique words for colors or numbers? This is the case for some indigenous tribes. How does our language influence our relationships with one another and with ecology? How is language being manipulated by politicians, think tanks and corporations? Jason Bosch of ArgusFest will be presenting documentary clips along with excerpts from talks by linguists exploring questions of language and perception.
