Ever thought how best to talk to someone who doesn’t share a first language with you?
Read my review of Esther Schor’s Bridge of Words: Esperanto and the Dream of a Universal Language in Hong Kong Review of Books 香港書評 here for one possible solution.
In Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practice for the Public Good, Jessie Daniels and Polly Thistlethwaite explore how digital media can be used to support scholarship and teaching and also further the pursuit of social justice. Paul Webb recommends this fascinating book for showing how digital scholarship can help generate robust research with genuine impact and can enable the convergence of academia, activism and journalism in productive ways.
