Equity Issues in Language, Education, and Society EDUC 836 (5)

Participants will critically examine how language intersects with nation-states, race, class, religion, gender, sexuality, and ability, among other social categories, to perpetuate multiple forms of inequality in various social institutions, such as mass media, home, school, church, workplace, and law and the judicial system. Participants will juxtapose academic articles with personal experiences and observations, as well as media representations and public discourses, to explore equity issues related to language in education and society in local, national and global contexts.
