Re-shaping the African Narrative

The ATLAS speaker series kicks off on September 28 at 3:30 pm!

Eliza Akua Thompson from Hearing and Speech Sciences is our featured speaker. Thompson will share about her background growing up in Ghana and her later experiences as an immigrant, first-generation student and professor. She will also discuss her past work on the African continent, her current research related to language and literacy, as well as her current work in Ghana, including the creation of her study abroad course, HESP-GPS (Hearing Speech Sciences: Global Perspectives in Service Learning). She will share her insights on creating a sustainable service learning experience for students, teaching students to be culturally competent, and empowering the local community.

The event will be held at H.J. Patterson Hall, room 2124, and will also be available via Zoom for online attendees. Light refreshments will be served.
