Join us for a zoom panel discussion with the editors of the newly released open access edited collection, "Thinking with an Accent: Toward a New Object, Method, and Practice."
Everyone speaks with an accent, but what is an accent? Accent does more than just denote identity: from algorithmic bias and corporate pedagogy to migratory poetics and the politics of comparison, accent mediates global economies of discrimination and desire. Thinking with an Accent introduces accent as a powerfully coded yet underexplored mode of perception that includes looking, listening, acting, reading, and thinking. This volume convenes scholars of media, literature, education, law, language, and sound to theorize accent as an object of inquiry, an interdisciplinary method, and an embodied practice.
Join us for a conversation with the editors on what it means to think with an accent.
Speakers: Pooja Rangan (Amherst), Akshya Saxena (Vanderbilt), Ragini Tharoor Srinivasan (Rice), and Pavitra Sundar(Hamilton) in conversation with Preeti Singh (Dartmouth)
