Meeting Description: You are all cordially invited to attend the 2014 Language, Society, and Culture Conference, which will be held at Bronx Community College on March 7, from 8:30 to 4:00. Admission is free.

The keynote speaker, Rebecca Mlynarczyk, will be giving a paper entitled 'Story Telling and Academic Discourse: Including More Voices into the Conversation.'

Please join us for a conversation on the following questions:

How do we conceive academic discourse? How do our conceptions inform our teaching practices? Are academic discourse and storytelling compatible? If so, what are some points of contact, and how can they benefit our students? How do we take into account the linguistic and cultural diversity of our students as we bring academic discourse—and possibly storytelling—into our classrooms?
