Discover Auburn Lecture

On Multilingualism

Dr. Iulia Pittman, Associate Professor, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Auburn University

Date and Time:  Thursday, February 22 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Special Collections and Archives Department, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

Multilingualism in the world is the rule rather than the exception.   Are most people you know monolingual or multilingual?   Come to this lecture to find out more about what it is like to grow up speaking several languages and to raise children multilingually in a monolingual environment.  To what do the terms "folk bilingualism" and "elite bilingualism" refer?  Is "mixing" languages a sign that you don't speak either language well?

Speaking several languages often also means that you are comfortable in several different cultures.   What multilinguals know quite well is that language, culture, and identity go hand in hand.

Dr. Iulia Pittman grew up in a Romanian-Hungarian family in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania.  There, she attended a German school and later learned English as a foreign language.   She has worked as a certified translator and interpreter for Romanian, Hungarian, German, English, and Dutch.  In 2000, she moved to the United States to pursue a Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Georgia.  She joined the Foreign Languages Department at Auburn University in 2006, where she has been teaching courses in German language, business, and linguistics.   Her current research focusses on family language policies, multilingual practices, and minority language maintenance.

Getting Out of the Mud:  The Alabama Good Roads Movement and Highway Administration, 1898-1928

Dr. Marty Olliff, Professor of History and Director of the Wiregrass Archives, Troy University, Dothan

Date and Time:  Thursday, February 8 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Special Collections and Archives, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

With the development of national markets in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Americans began to regard the nation as a whole, rather than their state or region, as the most important political entity.  Many Alabamians wished to travel beyond their local communities in all seasons without getting stuck in the mud of rudimentary rutted dirt roads.   Dr. Olliff explores the history of the Good Roads Movement and how middle-class reformers in Alabama overcame obstacles to construct a road system that would accommodate economic growth in the twentieth century.

Patience Essah Africana Studies Lecture Series

African American Covers of Country Music BEFORE Ray Charles:  Prevalence and Significance

Dr. Tim Dodge, Reference Librarian, History and Political Science Subject Specialist, Auburn University Libraries

Date and Time:  Tuesday, January 16 at 3:30 p.m.

Location:  Ground Floor Auditorium, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

Ray Charles's 1962 release of his "Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music" L.P. is considered a milestone and is regarded as the first successful attempt of an African American artist to record music that was first recorded by a Country artist.  However, it turns out that Charles was by no means the first African American artist to have done so.  Tim Dodge will provide a historical overview of the phenomenon and will explore both the prevalence and significance of this recording activity.  Brief musical examples will be provided to help illustrate this little-known aspect of African American recording history.
