Quantbot Lecture Series: “What is Language?” by Ahmar Mahboob

On February 9th, Quantbot had the opportunity to attend to a lecture by Ahmar Mahboob about the nature of language and linguistics.

Prior to the lecture, Ahmar posed questions such as, “Is language a purely human ability or can other life forms learn language too?” and “Is language related to environment and climate change?”. By asking these questions, the main focus of the lecture was uncovered: to understand on a deeper level how language can impact personal and professional lives as well as address societal and environmental concerns.

Ahmar is an Associate Professor of Linguistics at the University of Sydney. Some of Ahmar’s achievements include being a two time recipient of the President of Pakistan’s Award for Highly Qualified Overseas Pakistanis as well as being recognized as the field leader in English language and literature by the Australian Magazine. Additionally, his poetry was inducted into the Australian Poetry Hall of Fame in 2021.

Thank you Ahmar for a great presentation!
