Dr. Orlando E. Raola presents “The Dream of a Language Bridge: Esperanto in the World Today” on April 1, 2019 in Newman Auditorium at Santa Rosa Junior College, Santa Rosa, CA.

“The need for language bridges has been a constant presence since the beginning of interacting with members of different tribes and of different nations. The solutions used for this communication problem have taken different forms through the centuries. Nowadays, some think that the English language can rightfully claim to be the long-sought bridge. However, there are many reasons why this isn’t so, and more importantly, why it should not be so. In the search for a more efficient, just, and egalitarian bridge, the idea of a planned or constructed language has been around for the longest time. Of the myriad of projects proposed, only one has achieved all the evolutionary steps to become a fully functional and living language: the International Language Esperanto. In this lecture, the highlights of 130 years of Esperanto development are presented together with a perspective of the new possibilities opened by the omnipresent World Wide Web and with some serious reflection about the future of human communication.”
