The Women in Time’s Most Influential List 2011: Sue Savage-Rumbaugh

on January 3, 2012

Oh boy. Sue Savage-Rumbaugh is a name I am super unfamiliar with. Come learn along with me.

  • She works with monkeys studying their use of language.

I think that she is influential but to a very limited extent. I think she is influential within her field, but I’m not sure her work particularly effects ordinary people. Teaching monkeys language is a cool and useful thing for people who work with primates, but I’m not sure how it would effect the average person. So I will say she is very limitedly influential. However, there is some evidence that her research might someday be used to help children with disabilities learn to communicate, but I will still say her influence is limited because it hasn’t been used for that yet and it might never be and/or it might not be successful.
