Continuing WVU's celebration of the arts and humanities, this issue of THE QUESTION features WVU's Department of World Languages, Literatures & Linguistics.  How is the world different in another language? Join faculty members and others in pondering this question and subsequent interesting questions that arise. Watch a video to hear some opinions and take the opportunity to weigh in on the topic with your own experiences. So spread the question and let’s keep the dialogue going.

All students are encouraged to share your ideas by submitting an essay or video to the Big Ideas contest.  Feel free to contact Dr. Sharon Ryan, Associate Professor of the WVU Philosophy Department at if you have questions.
