Thursday, June 17, Zoom

Learn how dialect, place, and identity are connected, and in particular, how sounding like a Yooper and what it means to be a Yooper are inextricably linked. Michigan author Kathryn Remlinger, Ph.D., of Grand Valley State University, will give insight into the intriguing history of how Michigan’s Upper Peninsula developed its colorful and culturally distinctive Yooper dialect and identity.

See how this connection has developed over time and is a result of economics, such as the tourism industry, our beliefs about who is and who is not a “real” Yooper, and our ideas about what a Yooper should sound like. She will show many examples collected over the past 19 years, including tourist souvenirs, signs in public spaces, movies, and social media.

Registration is required and will end at noon on the day of the program. Register here or call 586.751.5377.
