Wauwatosa professor George Paasewe is writing a book on code switching

George Paasewe is the author of "How Black College Students Learn Code Changing" and the founder / CEO of The Code-Switcher.

Code change: It’s a phrase you might hear from time to time, but what does it really mean?

George Paasewe, professor and author in the Milwaukee area, has made it his goal to research and share the benefits of code-switching, especially in the case of colored people.

Paasewe attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and as a black student, he attended a university where only about 5% of the student’s population resembled him.

That was where he first learned about the concept. Paasewe defines code-shifting as “the practice of adapting one’s speaking style, appearance, behavior, and expression to a particular context or situation.”

“It was something that I noticed that I myself did a lot on the university campus, especially when it came to interacting with my professors or mentors; I noticed that I myself changed code,” Paasewe said.
