Yooper Talk with Kathryn Remlinger
In this presentation, Kathryn Remlinger, author of Yooper Talk: Dialect as Identity in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, will show how dialect, place, and identity are connected. She will also demonstrate how sounding like a Yooper and what it means to be a Yooper are inextricably linked. Nineteen years worth of examples, including tourist souvenirs, signs in public spaces, movies, and social media round out this lively, fun presentation.
