CANCELED-Minority Languages in World Affairs @ Old Lyme Country Club | Old Lyme | Connecticut | United States

CANCELED-due to COVID-19 pandemic. Read our Executive Director’s response here.

Join us Friday, March 20, 2020, for a luncheon presentation by Nina Garrett, Director of Language Study at Yale. The luncheon will take place at Old Lyme Country Club at 12noon. You do not need to be a member of the Club to attend.

SECWAC member Nina Garrett (and former Director of Language Study at Yale) has offered to lead a discussion on minority languages in world affairs.  She will cover a range of topics including definitions of “minority regional languages”, minority languages as a basis for political and cultural oppression/genocide and separatists movements, minority languages in diaspora, and bilingualism in official and minority language.  Please bring plenty of questions – a key to the Lunch Program is robust discussion in this smaller group forum.

Limited space available. Please RSVP to info@secwac.org as soon as possible.
