Paul Frommer, creator of the Na'vi language featured in James Cameron's blockbuster film "Avatar" and professor of clinical management communication at the USC Marshall School of Business, discussed the topic of "What Matters to Me and Why" on Nov. 2, 2011.
Frommer is the former vice president, special projects coordinator, strategic planner and writer-researcher of Bentley Industries, Inc. He is also the linguistic consultant for a prominent Hollywood film production company.
"What Matters to Me and Why" is a speakers' series that bridges the separation between intellectual life and personal and spiritual issues by having featured USC faculty and administrators spend about 20 minutes addressing the topic "What Matters to Me and Why," followed by an informal dialogue rounding out the hour.
The program is sponsored by the USC Office of Religious Life and the USC Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics.
