Accentedness and the Ethics of Listening:
The Listener’s Role in Global Communication
Tuesday, November 13, NVC 14-270, 12:30pm – 2:30pm
Sponsored by Tools for Clear Speech
From: Dennis Dolack, Director, Tools for Clear Speech Program
Developed by the Tools for Clear Speech (TfCS) program, this workshop poses the following paradox: 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 us 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. Light refreshments will be served.
Registration is free but required: please register here.
