1984: Newspeak Edition

1984-newspeak-editionOn November 5th, 2016, the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in Lexington, Kentucky hosted an event based around George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. As part of the event, I designed the program, which included a satirical section called “1984: Newspeak Edition”.

In the novel, “newspeak” is an abbreviated version of English that removes all subtlety and nuance from the language. The first half of this program is a “translation” of the novel into this truncated language.

The rest of the program simply describes the details of the event.
