Description:

The Acoustics of Roux: Acculturation, Migration and Identity among Cajun and Hispanic populations along the Gulf Coast.

Eric Patrick will introduce some of the ethnographic research that has gone into the creation of his current animated film production “The Acoustics of Roux.” The film traces the criminalization of language, migration patterns, acculturation, and the construction of identity among blue collar populations in SW Louisiana and SE Texas.

Eric Patrick is Associate Professor and Production Area Head in Northwestern's Department of Radio/Television/Film and a Fellow of the Kaplan Humanities Institute.

Co-presented by the Evanston Public Libary and the Kaplan Humanities Institute, the Evanston Northwestern Humanities Lecture Series invites Northwestern faculty to share and discuss their research with the public in casual evening lectures at the library.
