Esther Birney lecture: Skylet Yu (Langara) – “Songs of Resistance”

Using Charles Tripp’s approach to artistic interventions as a means of resistance, Skylet examines the ways in which songs have a way of reclaiming public space, inviting dialogue and sympathy, building identity and solidarity through shared vocabulary, and producing “a common, mutually reinforcing imagery” that challenges the regime’s oppression.

Skylet Yu is an instructor in the English Department at Langara College. Besides her research interests in corpus linguistics, language change, language assessment, English varieties, and Canadianisms, she is passionate about fostering a learning community and developing inclusive relationships with diverse groups of colleagues and students.
