Processing Cues to Ethnicity in Parisian French and American English

Christopher M. Stewart, University of Texas-Arlington
Tuesday, May the 15th at 4:00 pm, Straub 142

Dr. Christopher M. Stewart is a sociolinguist working with French. His main area of research is within speech perception and social cognition specifically related to how we construct social stereotypes and prejudices such as those of ethnicity.

This talk will mark the first stage of the Romance Language Department’s Heritage Program where we will be reflecting on how stereotypes and prejudices are formed in our minds which in turn establish mental borders (reflected in the material reality of speakers).
