This is a past event
  • Open to the Public

Don’t miss Ruth Ozeki, writer, filmmaker, and Zen Buddhist priest, in conversation with Professor Ilan Stavans on the changing nature of our language. One of the remaining threads binding Americans to each other and to their past is the English language. But even that is contested. What impact does Zen Buddhism have on language? How does our language convey time? Do we have the lexicon to address loss?
