You're Invited to "Beyond My Accent"

PLEASE NOTE: LOCATION HAS BEEN CHANGED TO THE HENRY STUDENT CENTER BALLROOM.

Tomato. Tomatoe. Tamata. We are all exposed to accents on a daily basis. While they might not seem like much, there actually is a lot to know about them.

If you’ve ever been interested in learning about the different biases revolving around an accent, or simply want to learn some basic tips to break down different tough accents, then this event is perfect for you.

Amy Kuiken will host "Beyond My Accent" from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, in the Henry Student Center Ballroom. This event will cover social stigmas and justice issues related to accents, and offer you a basic toolkit to help dissect those tough accents.
