The prezi that wasn’t

For Friday’s presentation at the Berkeley Language Center’s Moving Between Languages colloquium, I was really looking forward to moving beyond the world of Powerpoint or Keynote as a way of having visual support for my talk. But it didn’t look to be easy. Heck, even in that first sentence, I couldn’t write […]

I’m at the BLC one-day colloquium, History and Memory in Foreign Language Study, and though I’ll only be able to be here for part of the day, I’d like to leave a few thoughts. Or, as I’ve tried to indicate in the title, one view.
