Judith Kaplan – The Recorded Voices of Indigenous Americans
In this Science and Religion Project seminar Judith Kaplan will be exploring the following questions:
7:30 pm CET
- What makes a source “scientific” (or not), and why?
- How do we deal with incommensurable meanings, that is, concepts that do not translate well across different ways of knowing?
- How might technology—in this case, audio recording—relate to scientific or religious ways of engaging with the world?
Dr. Judith Kaplan is a cultural and intellectual historian of the human sciences with a special interest in the history of linguistic research.
