“And don’t assume, because I don’t respect assumptions, babe”

Instead of bringing you local live music, this week Live at Lerner is partnering with International at Columbia to bring you “What’s In a Name? Navigating Name Conventions in Today’s Global Society,” an interactive session led by Dr. Athena Trentin on name conventions in a global society. The discussion aims to break down assumptions and stereotypes based on names while also educating on global naming conventions and on strategies for pronouncing unfamiliar names.

As usual, lunch will be served. The session is from noon to 2pm in Lerner 555. You can check out the Facebook event here.
