Community Conversations: Social Constructs of Accent and Dialects

 

| Open Player in New Window

What is the difference between an accent and a dialect? What effect does one’s accent have on one’s perceived social status? If we all speak English, how do these different dialects develop? Join Oregon Brain Trust as a dynamic panel attempt to help answer these questions and more.

Community Conversations is an academic program that is one of the Living Learning Initiatives of University Housing in partnership with the Clark Honors College, the Oregon Humanities Center, and Undergraduate Studies. The goal of Community Conversations is to stimulate intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, contrarian debate, and articulate discourse among the 3,300+ residential students at the University of Oregon.
