Please join me on Thursday, September 12th for the first Faculty Colloquium of the academic year. James Pfrehm, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, will be presenting Technolingualism: Language and Technology in Dialogue…….“Since the early day of our species, technology and language have evolved in parallel. Innovations in tool making were a catalyst for more complex, systematic means of communication. Similarly, these physical innovations—in addition to other sophisticated cultural practices—presuppose complex, systematic means of communication. Regardless of which came first—the ‘cognitive technology’ of language or the physical technologies of culture—this was the beginning of “technolingualism,” the ‘inter-language’ that emerges out of the timeless dialogue between language and technology.”
