Is there a UNIVERSAL VISUAL LANGUAGE
that enables communication across
cultures?

To learn more join the
University of Western Australia
Program in Science Communication

This Friday, 7 September from 4.00 at the
UWA Centre for Learning Technology

Dr. Andrzej Gwizdalski will draw on his
PhD thesis (2011, University of
Melbourne) to discuss universal visual
communication in the context of cross-
cultural meanings, human universals,
neuroscience and practical examples from
around the world.

The twenty-first century is dominated by
visual digital communication, from
academic PowerPoint presentations to
YouTube videos, city screen
advertisements and airport safety
instructions.

Visuals help communicate our ideas, but
are these visual messages understood in a
similar way by people from diverse
professional, social and cultural
backgrounds?

All are welcome, no RSVP required.

weekly announcements for UWA Program in
Science Communication Seminars.
