Brownbag Lecture: What Linguists Know about Literature

AKSB 904, Beirut campus

The English Department is hosting a series of lunchtime lectures on different topics in literature, linguistics and related areas from mid-March through mid-April. The events are part of the department’s Brownbag Lunch Series, so named because they take place over lunch, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own food.  

Dany Badran, associate professor of English and critical linguistics, will cover the contribution of linguistics on the analysis of literature in his talk. He will analyze a short poem, something done regularly in the course ENG303-Literary Linguistics, one of the core courses in the English major.
