Gloria Kondrup, Ty Drake: “Wordism [derogatory resist]”
A presentation and discussion by Gloria Kondrup (Executive Director, HMCT), and Ty Drake (Designer and Associate Professor at ArtCenter College of Design) examining the increase in the use of derogatory words and lack of communication etiquette in popular culture. Can words be provocative, without being harmful or inflammatory? Can we reclaim our responsibility for the standards that are set by the language — spoken and visual — that we choose for discourse?
