From Stone Tablets to iPads: 125 Years of Language Study


Join us in the University of Chicago Language Center to trace the history of language learning on UChicago’s campus. From the very first languages to the over 50 currently taught each academic year, language pedagogy has changed dramatically while also staying very much the same. From Akkadian to Yiddish, between tablets and scrolls, to the teaching of languages within and beyond our walls, join us for a talk that will both inform you and provoke new questions.
