The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) is the oldest
college at DePaul University, with 29 undergraduate majors and graduate programs. Courses are offered days, evenings and weekends, primarily on the Lincoln Park campus. LAS includes several key academic centers, including the Center for Black Diaspora, the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology, the Center for Interreligious Engagement, the Center for Latino Research, the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development, the DePaul Humanities Center, the Institute for Business and Professional Ethics, and the Social Science Research Center.
LAS is committed to providing all of its students with a liberal arts education that balances in-depth study in certain areas with a breadth of experience in the various disciplines that form the core of human knowledge. Its
degree-granting programs and disciplines share a commitment to the
highest standards of academic quality, to a mode of study that nurtures
critical thinking skills, to a self-conscious examination of questions
of value and meaning, and to the development of those habits of the
heart and mind intrinsic to a life-long and independent learner.
LAS values and nurtures the urban and Vincentian mission of DePaul. The interactions among its faculty and between its faculty and its students are
characterized by personalism. Significant portions of the curriculum
speak to questions of social responsibility, ethical standards for
behavior, and an active engagement with the people and the challenges of
the Chicago community.

On Tuesday, September 24, Michael Paterniti will read from his new book, The Telling Room: A Tale of Love, Betrayal, Revenge, and the World's Greatest Piece. The fun begins at 6 p.m. at 103 Arts & Letters Hall, 2315 N. Kenmore Ave., a block and a half from the Fullerton stop on the Red and Brown lines.
about the book, which is already a New York Times bestseller, Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore's Dilemma and The Botany of Desire, says, “[the] best book of narrative nonfiction I’ve read in ages.” Adds the legendary short-story writer George Saunders: “For my money, Paterniti is one of the most expansive and joyful writers around—big-hearted and humane and funny. This book is a wild and amazing ride.”
A common misconception concerning bilingual speakers is that they are basically two monolinguals rolled up into a single person. In fact the grammars of bilinguals and monolinguals speaking the same language are different. Yet not all grammar is affected equally by contact with another language.
This can be seen in the focus construction in Hungarian which requires speakers to integrate information from multiple sources in order to use or interpret it. If complex structures of this type are especially affected by contact with other languages, we would expect the speech of Hungarian/English bilinguals to differ from that of monolinguals in the realization and interpretation of focus. This Mess Hall presentation will discuss the preliminary results of an ongoing experiment designed to test that prediction and will explore other language questions.
