From Page To Stage-Knowing Your Audience: Code-Switching & Social Performance
“Yo!” “Greetings.” “Hey there!” Most of us have engaged in a phenomenon of social interaction known as “code-switching,” where we alter our language or dialect depending on who we are talking to. Experts in linguistics, sociology, and performance from The University of Illinois at Chicago, Northwestern University, and Lake Forest College, use real world examples to explore code-switching and how we present ourselves and communicate. A From Page To Stage program presented in conjunction with Writers Theatre's production of Smart People, a play that examines issues of privilege, implicit bias, and miscommunication.
The program will take place in the auditorium.
