On Monday, April 17, four MLLI students presented research that they have been conducting over the past year for their departmental honors theses:
- Hailey Jowanowitch: A Psycholinguistic Account for Korean Word-spacing Errors
- Caleb Metcalf: Boy Meets Girl, Boy, Girl: Subverting Master Narratives in the Web-Series MANN/FRAU
- Jessica Willis: Sticks and stones: A Conversation Analysis of the Pragmatic Tools Used in Emotionally Abusive Language
- Caitlin Ostrowski: There’s nothin’ to it: the ING variable, Hitchcock, James Stewart and the American Postwar Crisis of Masculinity
- (not presenting today) Kelly Dunn: Narrative Constructions of Collective Memory: Representing the Armed Conflict in Colombia
The presentations were moderated by Dr. Thomas Field. After the presentations, the participants, all of whom have studied linguistics at UMBC, were given a gift from the Applied Linguistics area.
