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.

This program will be presented via Zoom. Register here.
