Wanderings on Literature and Language

Waywords

our studio

“Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man.” 

Martin Heidegger, “Poetry, Language, Thought”

Waywords produces a web of programs and media designed to improve our thinking in democratic action, in critical literacy, in global understanding. We provoke, inspire, and wrestle with the ambiguities and richness of human thinking, from times modern to ancient. 

While offering serious educational support for those who want it, Waywords entertains and engages with surprising takes on a wide range of global topics, from Western social trends to modern mythological thinking.

Criticism

The Waywords podcast and blog explore the workings of global literatures, language, and mythology through a social-epistemic rhetoric.
