The gestures that we use when we speak are an often-overlooked part of what makes us human. This evening we will learn how gestures are closely linked to the human language faculty. We will also examine how gesture and culture are closely linked. Finally, we will look at how gesture is a unique part of human cognition that differentiates us from computers and also from other animals.
