Description

This event has been postponed to next academic year.

This talk draws from critical pedagogy and critical linguistics in an analysis of the historical treatment of linguistic variation in world language education and its role in reproducing social hierarchies and inequality. This is followed by the presentation of an alternative model: an anti-racist. social justice-oriented pedagogy designed to promote students’ critical translingual competence.
