Event description

Description

The second half of the Hauser & Wirth Publishers Utopia / Dystopia series, co-presented with Morbid Anatomy, will open with an event exploring the ways in which language has been harnessed to utopian projects. Linguist Arika Okrent will present some of the highs and lows in humanity’s 900-year quest to build a better language. Then, J. R. R. Tolkien scholar Jessica Burke will look at the languages of Middle-earth, the cultures that speak them, the related functions of language and mythology, and their place within our world today.
