Hey, here’s the festival lineup for this week. The theme is ‘Giving.’ I’ve also linked some resources sent to me by Lana Ruck, one of the participants from weeks prior. I hope to see you at the Instagram live #spreadlovenotcorona festival tomorrow night.
Lana Ruck’s anthropology thoughts on handedness, tools, and language: https://blogs.iu.edu/sciu/2016/12/06/hands-tools-and-words/ In this article, she explores the interconnections of our species’ propensity towards right handedness, using and making tools over time, and how language developed in our brain. It’s awesome and I hope you head over and read it!
