Language Variation in Kentucky: Exploring You Guys’, Y’all’s, and You All’s speech
Kentucky is located at a particularly interesting crossroads in the dialect landscape of the United States. This talk by Professor Jennifer Cramer of the Linguistics Department at the University of Kentucky will introduce listeners to the specific linguistic situation of the state and its many diverse regions. A major portion of the talk will focus on Louisville, and on how Louisvillians produce and perceive their regional identities through the language they speak. We will also go beyond Louisville to understand the folk beliefs Kentuckians have about the varieties of English spoken across their state, including in the Appalachian region. In the process, we will discover how varied the Englishes of Kentucky can be.

CONVO: Chemistry and Law Enforcement
Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theatre, Danville KY

 
Chemistry in the Public Interest: Chemistry, Law Enforcement, and Counter-Terrorism
Forensic science seeks to develop techniques and methods to answer questions related to law enforcement and defense investigations. The central concept of “chemistry in the public interest” can be used to guide and inform research activities in this area. Dr. John Goodpaster, director of forensic sciences at IUPUI, seeks to combine powerful chemical analysis methods with issues of acute social relevance such as law enforcement, public health, and counter-terrorism. His laboratory investigations include work on explosives and IEDs, lifestyle markers, and trace evidence. Goodpaster will discuss the state of research in this area and its impact on the public interest.

CONVO: Muslim Heroines in Graphic Narratives
CONVO: Muslim Heroines in Graphic Narratives
Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
Veiled Superheroes: Muslim Heroines in the World of Graphic Narratives
In her latest book, Sophia Rose Arjana explores the world of graphic narratives – comic books, webcomics, and animation – and the Muslim superheroines who populate these texts. From the world of Marvel where we encounter a teenage superhero named Kamala Khan to the Burka Avenger of Pakistan, these Muslim girls and women are portrayed as independent, strong, and heroic. These characters also illustrate how religious clothing and superhero costuming can be used in ways that challenge stereotypes and recast veiling as a liberative practice. Sophia Rose Arjana is a scholar of religion at Western Kentucky University and has published three books on Islamic subjects.

CONVO: Olio — A Reading by poet Tyehimba Jess
CONVO: Olio — A Reading by poet Tyehimba Jess
Norton Center for the Arts – Weisiger Theatre, Danville KY

 
Olio: A Reading by 2017 Pulitzer-Prize winner in poetry Tyehimba Jess
A Reading by 2017 Pulitzer-Prize winner Poet Tyehimba Jess, or, as we describe it, “Cultural Innovators of the 19th-century African Diaspora as featured in Tyehimba Jess’s Olio.” The traditions in structure and form of pre-colonial African musical styles and African-American musical expression not only inform, but constitute the very framework with which Jess constructs these poems. Through his poem sequences imagined in different voices, combined with relevant descriptive quotations, Jess encourages readers to explore the history and experiences of a number of musicians and artists, including Scott Joplin, African American/Native American sculptor Edmonia Lewis, the Fisk Jubilee Singers, performer Blind Tom, and others. In one very thought provoking moment, Jess encourages us to rip a page from history (in the book) and own it, confront it, and mold and shape our perception thereof. In page after page he manages to dismantle Eurocentrism and reveal the richness of America’s artistic tradition, so built upon the talents of post-colonial artistic strivings.
