Humanities Seminar with Kristen di Gennaro, Professor of English

Monday, November 5
W610, One Pace Plaza, New York City campus

After briefly discussing Dante and the historical questione della lingua, Kristen will then draw on her own research with colleagues and students to illustrate how they have drawn from linguistics to address a number of current research questions ranging from the similarities and differences between catcalls and compliments to the benefits (or not) of correcting students’ grammatical errors in their writing assignments. There will be a group discussion on the relevance of linguistics across multiple disciplines and how to create new educational and research opportunities for students and faculty to explore.​
