How do we know when and if we are saying the same thing? Across cultures? Knowledge systems? Values? Even vocabulary? Digging into this concept, we talk with SEARCH co-chair and co-Principal Investigator Vera Kingeekuk Metcalf to hear about her experiences with translation. Vera’s expertise then harmonizes with a conversation with Gifford Wong, Research Staff Member at IDA Science and Technology Policy Institute. Gifford shares insights about the values of effective communication inspired by his research as a glaciologist and an improv theatre performer.
