Accentedness and the Ethics of Listening Workshop
Start Date: 10/24/2018Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 10/24/2018End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:

Communication is a two-way street, yet communicative breakdowns are usually attributed to the speaker, especially if the speaker has a non-native accent. Join the Tools for Clear Speech program for an exploration of the overlooked yet vital role of the listener in linguistically diverse academic contexts. TfCS Curriculum Specialists Kim Edmunds and Tristan Thorne will share research-based insights that demonstrate how challenging underlying biases about non-native accents can enhance comprehension, encourage empathy, and foster meaningful intercultural communication.

RSVP is free but required.
