Howard Giles, professor of communication at UCSB since 1989, will discuss age and aging at the Chancellor’s Community Breakfast on Thursday, March 8.

The UCSB Affiliates event will begin at 7:30 a.m. at the Santa Barbara Club, 1105 Chapala St. in Santa Barbara, where parking is available.

The cost is $20 and includes a full breakfast buffet. Reservations are requested by calling 805.893.2877. Checks should be made payable to the UC Regents and mailed to the Office of Public Events, UC Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA 93106.

Giles’ speech is titled “Talking Age and Aging Talk: Communicative Recipes for Successful Aging.” His current interests and areas of study revolve around intergenerational communication and lifespan aging — from a cross-cultural perspective — as well as law enforcement-civilian interactions and community policing issues.

Giles has been named a Distinguished Scholar by the National Communication Association.

In addition, he received the 2011 Outstanding Journal Article Award for “Psycholinguistic and Social Psychological Components of Communication by Older Adults,” which appeared in an issue of the journal Language & Communication. The award, presented by the NCA’s Communication and Aging Division, recognizes an article’s overall contribution to that area of study. Giles’ co-authors included communication scholars Ellen Bouchard Ryan, Giampiero Bertolucci and Karen Henwood.

In 2005-06, the UCSB faculty bestowed its highest honor on Giles, presenting him with the Faculty Research Lectureship award for his significant scholarship.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
