    Sex, Drugs and Bilingualism - Thomas Bak

    20:10New Town Theatre, 96 George St, Edinburgh EH2 3DH

    When it comes to sex, drugs and bilingualism, we fool ourselves if we believe we are objective, claims Thomas Bak (The University of Edinburgh). These topics touch our social, moral and religious values as well as deep emotions, including the fear of the ‘loss of control’. Beneath the surface of seemingly rational scientific debates rages a war for our souls. So, let’s give up the illusion of ‘objective science’, admit that everybody is wrong (at least occasionally) and look together behind the scenes of the passionately fought ‘bilingualism wars’ to find out why we love/hate languages.

    Part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas, tickets £10/£8
