The English Department would like to invite you to an upcoming event:


Bringing Linguistics to Work(shop)

November 14th, 3:30pm, HUM 485 (Inside English Department Offices)


By Career Linguist (and sociolinguist), Dr. Anna-Marie Trester

We studied linguistics. What’s next?


Bringing Linguistics to Work(shop) has been designed to help linguistics students become more aware of (and better able to show) the transferability and applicability of our skills and training in a range of professional contexts. Focusing on story as a central tool, and sharing stories of career linguists who have found innovative ways to put linguistics to work, this workshop is designed to engender a sense of ownership, agency, and creativity to thinking about career.


Dr. Anna Marie Trester is an Associate with the Learning Unit at the FrameWorks Institute.  Prior to joining FrameWorks, she served as the Director of the M.A. in Language and Communication (MLC) Program in the Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University, where she helped students find professional application of their training in (socio)linguistics.  She has taught courses at Georgetown University, Howard University, the University of Alberta and the University of Maryland, University College (UMUC) including framing for social change, cross-cultural communication, language and social media, and the ethnography of communication.


And …We’re lucky to have her at SFSU this semester teaching one section of Language in Context!
