Lecture, “The Bounds of Diversity and the Mirage of Multi-Culturalism” with Tom Givón

Thursday, March 29, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM | Export event

Location: Room 130, Noble Hall
Cost: Free
Coordinator: Life-Long Learning Series
Contact: Mitch Davis, davis_m@fortlewis.edu

Diversity is a core ingredient of evolution through natural selection. As counterbalance, homogeneity, both genetic and behavioral, is necessary for the survival of coherent, internally-compatible populations. Givón, Colorado rancher and retired professor of linguistics and cognitive science, will discuss the close parallel between biological and cultural populations and survey the rise of agriculture, surplus food production and ever-larger social units, and close by looking at the current left-leaning academic obsession with diversity and multi-culturalism.
