Language, attention, and some other thoughts on mainstreaming

Yeah, I pretty much watch every video by Innuendo Studios. This one is one of my favourites. Here’s six smart things from this one on mainstreaming:

  • we’re all working to create the language resources we need,
  • the social narratives that shape our lives are powerful, but also changeable,
  • “language and visibility are tools for consolidating power,”
  • the attention economy is part of how culture is made and reproduced,
  • journalism is an important part of the attention economy,
  • the desire to belong, and to be “normal,” is a powerful social driver.
