Kübra Gümüşay about how language shapes us and her current study about real utopias

  • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to speak a genderless language? 
  • How can language shape how we see our present and imagine our future?
  • And have you already dealt with real utopias?

In this episode of the NEXT Show with Kübra Gümüşay, we talked a lot about languages and utopias. In addition, Kübra told us that for the research for her new book, she is exploring the impact of future ideas on our present.

Tune in and enjoy this journey to the land of language, real utopias and a short story about how to be humble.
