World Wine Web: Digital Dictionaries

The MMLC is gearing up for another World.Wine.Web. event! Stop by next Friday, May 17th, at 4:00pm in Kresge 1-375 for the last high-tech happy hour of the year! This month's topic: Digital Dictionaries: Russian Visual Dictionary & NUDe

The digital world opens a host of possibilities for teaching, but also for our students to negotiate meaning and learning. With the Russian Visual Dictionary, Lis Elliott (Slavic Languages) examines how we can make students be aware of "misculturation" and introduce so-called third places or intercultural comparison in language even at the very beginning levels. The Northwestern University Dictionary-e-version or NUDe is a new project, where Lis will guide students in their own creation of a digital-born dictionary of Northwestern, while thinking critically both about dictionaries and the waning age of information in physical book form.

The discussion will be lively and the drinks will be flowing, so join us for another rousing event! Hope to see you there!
