18 Feb Stance-Work towards Grammar, Interaction and Identity in Conversations amongst Persons-Who-Stutter in the US
Nathaniel W. Dumas (Linguistics, UCSB)
Friday, February 18 / 1:30 PM
Dumas’s research focuses on the face-to-face and computer-mediated communicative practices of members of American Stuttering English Speech Communities and how their informal and formal routines afford the social construction and reconfiguring of a particular sociolinguistic, rather than disabled, identity. This data session explores a segment of interaction amongst participants who identify as persons-who-stutter, or American Stuttering English (ASE) speakers, within their own communal contexts. This session will draw on data from fieldwork (2009-2010) in the Lyndale chapter of the Stuttering Organization of America (SOA) in Northern California.
