Details:

Anthropologist Basil Sansom is coming to Fullers to talk about language – in particular, about the semi-secret workings of language, many of which occur below the threshold of human awareness.

What rules do we take for granted when we speak? How are these rules formed? And why and how do we obey them?

The implications of how we communicate and who we communicate with extend to our very identities, where we belong, what we are.

Continuing our Tim Talks series, this is sure to be a fascinating look at how we shape and are shaped by the secret life of language.

Join Basil for Tim Talk 2 at Fullers Bookshop.

Tickets are free but booking is essential as places may be limited.

Event audience: Everyone
