Geoffrey Pullum Lecture: Racism and the Relevance of African American English

Tuesday, November 8, 2022
 1:30-3:00 p.m.

Geoff Pullum's first career was in soul music. Thirty years later, when he moved into a second career as a professor of linguistics in California, a story about the educational relevance of African American English exploded in the news media and he realized that two strands of his life had converged. In this talk, he tells the story and provides some surprising information about the most interesting of all English dialects.

Location: Karen J. Williams Courtroom, South Carolina School of Law
