Speaking of Language
S9E13 - Shyam Sharma - Transcending Monolingual Worldviews

S9E13 - Shyam Sharma - Transcending Monolingual Worldviews

May 11, 2022

In our final episode of the semester, we speak with Dr. Shyam Sharma, Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at the State University of New York in Stony Brook. He gave a talk as part of our monthly LRC Speaker Series on Transcending Monolingual Worldviews. We dive deeper into how to magnify the impact of knowledge in academia and society, as he shares ideas for rejecting a hegemony of English (or any state-imposed language) and embracing human connection through a multilingual experience.
