Prof. Cochrane presents at Sociolinguistics Symposium

Prof. Cochrane travelled to Auckland, New Zealand this summer to give a talk at the 22nd Annual Sociolinguistics Symposium. Her paper, ‘She was like me: Identity construction in vicarious narratives’, demonstrated how speakers discursively construct identities in narratives of vicarious experience (featuring third person characters) rather than solely in personal narratives (featuring the teller as a character).
