Ninth Emeritus Lecture Honoring John J. Gumperz

EXHIBIT: Crosstalk, Communication Documentary Series Broadcast on the BBC.

Crosstalk, first broadcast on BBC television May 1, 1979, was a pioneering effort in applied sociolinguistics. It was one of a series of ten programs entitled Multi-Racial Britain. Crosstalk confronted the issue of workplace miscommunication that comes from racial and ethnic stratification. Gumperz's recent research on gender inequality and miscommunication in the academic setting can be seen as an outgrowth of this work.
