In case you missed it, you can now watch Rachel’s stellar CUNY2020 talk!
(Indeed, all of the presentations from this year’s virtual CUNY conference recorded and available at osf.io. What a wonderful idea.)
Emily Sabo takes us through three guiding principles on what the scientific study of language can tell us about what makes us laugh.
“Emily is a Ph.D. student of Linguistics at The University of Michigan. By night, she performs standup comedy at dive bars near you. In her work as a linguist, she investigates the cognitive mechanisms that underlie bilingual language processing and the social priming that modulates how Midwesterners perceive Spanish-accented English speech in the U.S. today. Her passion projects include encouraging linguistic diversity, discouraging linguistic discrimination, and advocating for gender equality. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.”
