Jennifer 8. Lee is one of the founders of Emojination, a small group of activists whose motto is “Emoji for the people, by the people.” This global network works to make the emoji approval process an inclusive and representative process. She’ll be sharing her story about how her research on American Chinese food for The Fortune Cookie Chronicles turned into a passion for approval for the dumpling emoji and beyond. It will be a thought-provoking discussion on how this new digital linguistic media is shaping the world around us, as well as the minds of generations to come.
After the lecture, Jenny will be signing copies of her book in our Museum Store.
