What a dictionary can do

A dictionary is a political statement. That has always been so. They all are. Is that bad? Not necessarily. It all depends on the purpose of the dictionary. The intent. You need to know what the intent is.

Language should communicate, not manipulate

Wars over language, and through language, have come to shape our age. Every day offers fresh battles, fought on various platforms by various factions and individuals.

What is 6 Degrees?

6 Degrees challenges our unsettled age. It is about what we can do to counter rising nativism and exclusion, and how we can go about doing it. 6 Degrees is about connection, conversation, artistic representation, online engagement, and the power that comes from bringing people together. It is also about language: how better language can make for better thinking; how we can reframe issues to open hearts and change minds.
