As of today, unvaccinated older Greeks (60+) will forfeit 100 euros each month. Market fundamentalism is pushing the Mitsotakis government to adopt a measure that undermines its own vaccination drive. Yet another example of how the neoliberal mindset fails to understand that the principles of demand and supply do not work when it comes to (uncommodifiable) matters of body and soul.

How English Became English

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 07/05/2016 - 2:28am in

A Book at Lunchtime discussion looking at the English language and how it is developing with Simon Horobin, Faramerz Dabhoiwala, Martin Wynne, Philip Durkin and Susie Dent. The English Language is spoken by more than a billion people throughout the world. But where did English come from? And how has it evolved into the language used today?

Simon Horobin (Professor of English Language and Literature, University of Oxford) explores these questions with Faramerz Dabhoiwala (Associate Professor of Modern History, University of Oxford), Martin Wynne (Digital Methods Specialist, Oxford e-Research Centre, University of Oxford) and Philip Durkin (Deputy Chief Editor, Oxford English Dictionary) in a discussion centered around his new book 'How English Became English'.

The discussion is chaired by Susie Dent (English lexicographer and etymologist. Host of Countdown's "Dictionary Corner") and touches on topics as wide-ranging as cultural imperialism, snobbery, bullet points, Shakespeare, toilet brushes and alphabetti spaghetti.
