Psst. Multilingual geotweeps: Did you see #AGU ED011 “Ciencia Para Todos: Increasing Access to the Geosciences through Multilingual Science Outreach”?

It’d be awesome to see something on Canadian bilingual geo conferences.
My first-ever academic talk was in English with my slides en français (proofed by a francophone friend I bribed with wine).

Lots of animations of models, carefully tech-checked earlier in the day, times & over-rehearsed... so of COURSE we had a hiccup & I had to go slideless.
I sounded like a kindergartener stumbling through an inadequate technical vocabulary with atrocious grammar, but in retrospect it was my rite of passage into Canadian academia.

Les glissements de terrain!

Bilingual scicomm is impressive & terrifying.
