The Biology of Symbols: Lecture by Robert Bringhurst

Robert Bringhurst, renowned poet, typographer, and author, will present an illustrated lecture addressing the development of letters, words and writing, and their relationship to language. He will draw from his work The Solid Form of Language (2004), which deals with the history of script, as well as from his collection of lectures, The Tree of Meaning (2008).

Funding support for this event is (at present) being provided by the Hanes Gallery, the WFU Humanities Institute, and the Program in Interdisciplinary Humanities.
