Sociophonetics course at the 2015 LSA Summer Institute

This July I will co-teach (with Lauren-Hall Lew) a four-week introductory course in Sociophonetics at the 2015 Linguistic Summer Institute in Chicago, IL.  Our syllabus is currently under construction, but at the moment we're envisioning two weeks of introduction to the analysis of speech production (taught by Lauren), following by two weeks of an introduction to perception studies and how sociophonetic work has shaped theoretical models of variation (taught by me). I'm excited to meet and work with graduate students at the Institute (my first) as well as audit a course or two!
