Guest talk from Prof. Andrew Goatly


On Thursday, Andrew Goatly, honorary professor at Lingnan University, gave an invited speech entitled Grammar and the human nature relationship in environmental discourse and poetry for English Language and Linguistics students.

The talk was delivered with passion and clarity; yet also gave a highly technical, linguistic overview, which highlighted role of language in building our somewhat arrogant relationship with the environment, and how we use it to escape agency in the destruction of the world around us.
