San Diego Harper Lecture with Susan Goldin-Meadow: Hearing Gesture: How Our Hands Help Us Think
   
A look at how our gestures allow for a glimpse into how we think and what we're saying.

Cost: $20 General Admission
Registration Required: Alumni and Friends Event Website


Susan Goldin-Meadow is the Beardsley Ruml distinguished service professor at the University of Chicago, where she is a member of the Departments of Psychology and Comparative Human Development and of the Committee on Education. A year spent at the Piagetian Institute in Geneva as an undergraduate piqued her interest in the relation between language and thought, interests she has explored and continues to explore through the study of gesture—the homemade gestures children create before they are exposed to language, the gestures we all produce when we talk, and what they tell us about how we think.

Goldin-Meadow is the founding editor of Language Learning and Development; former associate editor of Developmental Psychology, Applied Psycholinguistics, and Cognitive Science; and current associate editor of Gesture. She served on the advisory council for the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communicative Disorders at the National Institutes of Health and was elected to the American Academy for Arts and Sciences in 2005.
