04:15PM 05:30PM Transidioma: Language and Power in the Digital Age: School: Emory College Department / Organization: French & Italian Department Building/Room: Mathematics & Science Center Meeting Organizer/Sponsor: department of French and Italian Speaker/Presenter: Marco Jacquemet Event Open To: All (Public) Cost: Free Contact Name: Amandine Ballart Contact Email: amandine.ballart@emory.edu The experience of cultural globalization, and the communicative disorder it entails, requires a serious retooling of most basic units of linguistic analysis. The chaos and indeterminacy of contemporary flows of people, knowledge, texts, and commodities across social and geographical space affects most sociolinguistic assumptions behind social interactions. In particular, we can no longer assume that shared knowledge, especially indexical knowledge, still serves to bind people together, facilitate interactions, and negotiate conflicts. By introducing the concept of transidioma—i.e. the ensemble of communicative practices of people embedded in multilingual environments and engaged in interactions that blend face-to-face and digitally-mediated communication—this lecture explores the problematic nature of late-modern communication, characterized as it is by asymmetrical power, multiple communicative agents with competing agendas, multilingual and hybridized talk, and multimodal (especially digital) forms of interaction. Using data from various ethnographic sites (but in particular from asylum hearings), this lecture documents the renewed reliance on denotational references as a primary strategy to handle interactions in multilingual, power-saturated settings. The claim is that it is time to go even beyond a “linguistics of contact” to examine the transidiomatic strategies (such as denotational-heavy interactional moves) which are the building blocks of a sociolinguistics of multilingual mixing, communicative recombinations, and xenoglossic becoming. + Math & science center, Room E208 Campus Events

Emory University’s Center for the Study of Human Health (CSHH) cordially invites you to attend a distinguished guest lecture by Maryn McKenna, CSHH Senior Fellow and author of the bestselling book, Big Chicken. Seating is limited, so reserve your FREE ticket today! Event Summary: In January 2017, the Obama Administration, in one of its last acts in office, banned growth-promoter antibiotics from US farm use, ending a 40-year stalemate between the federal health agencies and the agricultural and pharma industries. The European Union had banned this antibiotic use more than a decade earlier, yet in the U.S., researchers and activists had battled the policy for decades with little success. The untold story of this change, which is likely to reshape food production in America, is that it was due to consumer activism, a collective effort of many actors from chefs and parents to public schools and the catering departments of major hospitals. This talk is drawn from the research behind the bestselling book Big Chicken (National Geographic Books, 2017). Parking Directions: The nearest parking lot/garage to the event is the Peavine Parking lot/garage (29 Eagle Row, Atlanta GA 30322). There is no fee for parking in this location after 5:00 pm. To park in the garage, turn right on Eagle Row and walk downhill to the 4-way Stop. If you park in the open lot, exit the lot and walk to the 4-way Stop.

She is a columnist for Wired’s Ideas section, a Senior Fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University and the author of the 2017 bestseller BIG CHICKEN: The Incredible Story of How Antibiotics Created Modern Agriculture and Changed the Way the World Eats, which was named a best book of 2017 by Amazon, Smithsonian, Science News, Wired, Civil Eats, and other publications, and a 2018 Book All Georgians Should Read.
