Check out these great events that are coming up in May!
Emojis are everywhere!—so much so, in fact, that in 2015 that Oxford Dictionary’s 2015 Word of the Year was an emoji. Join Fred Benenson, who has translated Melville’sclassic novel Moby Dick into emojis, and New York Times technology reporter Jenna Wortham for a discussion about emojis, language, and technology.
This event is part of the Chicago Humanities Festival‘s spring festival.
