Language, Race and Justice


Location: Virtual

This session examines the intersections of language, race, identity and power. Drawing on recent work in raciolinguistics — the realm of linguistics which serves to answer the question “What does it mean to speak as a racialized subject in contemporary America?” — this interactive workshop asks participants to consider their own language stories and how language has shaped who they are and to what extent language repertoires inform perceived or real inclusion/exclusion in the speaking communities in which we participate. 

Presenter: Erin Moira Lemrow, a Notre Dame faculty member in multiple departments, including First Year of Studies, the Institute for Latino Studies and the Institute for Educational Initiatives.
