Dr. Jessi Grieser will be the 2023 Goldtrap Lecturer

April 5, 2023, 12:00-2:30pm

Dr. Grieser is an Associate Professor of Linguistics at the University of Michigan.

“My research focuses on the use of African American Language style in the creation and maintenance of identities which are not necessarily ethnoracial in nature, particularly identities of place and class, with healthy side servings of geosemiotics and the study of language online. I work using the methods of discourse analysis, sociophonetics, and quantitative variationist analysis, and especially the intersections thereof.”

The schedule on Wednesday, April 5 will be:

  • 12:00-1:00pm: Meeting with grad students and faculty
  • 1:10-1:50pm: Presentation
  • 1:50-2:30pm: Q&A
