Contributed by Laurie Arliss

Dr. Donathan Brown, assistant professor of communication studies and former H&S predoctoral diversity fellow, is slated to give the keynote address at the International Conference on Language, Literature, and Linguistics in Colombo, Sri Lanka (November 2013).


Dr. Brown's talk will blend the conference theme, "At the Intersection of Language, Culture, and Politics" with his work on political controversies pertaining to global issues such as immigration and voting rights.  Specifically, he will focus on de-constructing how the usage of language shapes perception and political behavior relevant to such issues.
