Special guests: Lisa Kays and Sharilyn Wiskup hosts of the @UnsonciousPlay podcast will do a live recording for their podcast and interview about the book!
On Thursday, May 25 from 6-8 pm join Career Linguist and storyteller, Dr. Anna Marie Trester, as she celebrates the release of Bringing Linguistics to Work, and shares her approach to career (improvisational, linguistic, and story) as part of the DC launch of Bringing Linguistics to Work.
Sharing the career stories of professional linguists to answer the perennial question of “what can you do with a degree in linguistics?” and drawing on the development activities included in her book, Dr. Trester invites participants to consider how linguists can use their language backgrounds to transform experiences into adaptable portable stories or “pocket examples” that powerfully show us using our skills and training in solving the challenges and problems that speak to us.
Although this will be of particular interest to linguists, anyone interested in learning actionable steps to bringing a storytelling approach to their professional path should plan to attend.
Can’t make it to this one? not a problem!
