Respeta Mi Idioma, by Dr. Mary Bucholtz @ Hurley Convergence Center, Digital Auditorium Tickets
Nov 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Respeta Mi Idioma, by Dr. Mary Bucholtz @ Hurley Convergence Center, Digital Auditorium

Dr. Mary Bucholtz, Department of Linguistics at the University of California Santa Barbara, will present the lecture “Respeta Mi Idioma” as part of the Christina Kakavá Linguistics Speaker Series.

Youth who speak socio-politically subordinated linguistic varieties regularly face the devaluation of their language in the classroom and the wider society, despite the considerable linguistic and cultural expertise they bring to school from their families, peer groups, and local communities. This talk charts how a combined research and community partnership program in California addresses these problems by promoting sociolinguistic justice and preparing primarily low-income Latina/o high school students for college by guiding them to undertake original research and activist projects on language, identity, and power in their lives. Ultimately, the goal of this program is not to “empower” youth but to recognize their already considerable agency to challenge sociolinguistic injustice
