On Thursday, March 10 from 12:45 to 1:45 in Oak 338, Eva Gan will lead us in a discussion of perspective shift across modalities, comparing role shift in sign languages with different types of perspective shift in spoken languages.
Eva encourages everyone to read the paper below before the discussion, but says it won’t be necessary to read it to follow along.
