The Independent Scholars are collecting derogatory words to be compiled in a list held in the library at The Institute as well as circulated on the internet. These are the words being used, at this time, in our social history, and words which are to be generally avoided, since they can be taken as humiliating, hostile and derogatory or ‘fighting’ words to the listener.
These words are also very revealing, reflecting the underlying prejudices and bias that weave in all societies and cultures.
Please bring in your personal lists of words you consider derogatory.
You can also access this list on our QC Institute Independent Scholars on LinkedIn.
We will continue to expand it as our Independent Scholars bring in their contributions.
First session in compiling the list is on
Thursday. June 9th. 2011
2nd floor of The Moline Club
Free and Open to the Public,
Light snacks and wine and refreshments are served.Doors open at 6.30.p.m.
The Independent Scholars' Evenings are sponsored by
The Institute for Cultural and Healing Traditions, Ltd. a state and federal level 501(c)3 since 1996 according to US laws.
