The relationship between language and culture for Sherpa speakers

Lauren Gawne writes:

Given that the average PhD thesis would take a full day to read aloud, it’s no mean feat for a research student to distill the importance of their work into just a couple of minutes. That is what University of Melbourne research student Sara Ciesielski has done in this two minute animated video:

Sara was one of the winners of the PhD Comics two minute thesis competition, which is why her discussion of her research has been so wonderfully animated by Jorge Cham.

Research like Sara’s is important because it shows that there is more than one way to raise a child to speak a language and that there are so many other factors as well.

(In the interest of full disclosure, Sara and I are both based at the University of Melbourne, both work in Nepal and both enjoy sari shopping).
