Colonial and imperial ideologies systematically frame racialized populations’ linguistic practices as deficient, scapegoating them as primary causes of educational and broader societal problems. Informed by decolonial perspectives, this presentation draws on ethnographic and sociolinguistic research conducted throughout US communities to understand the historical and contemporary (re)production of racial, linguistic, and national borders, as well as to reimagine worlds beyond these borders.  

This Raciolinguistic Ideologies and Decolonial Possibilities presentation will be given by Jonathan Rosa, associate professor in the Graduate School of Education, Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, and Departments of Anthropology, Linguistics, and Comparative Literature at Stanford University. He is author of Looking like a Language, Sounding like a Race: Raciolinguistic Ideologies and the Learning of Latinidad (2019, Oxford University Press) and co-editor of Language and Social Justice in Practice (2019, Routledge). His work has appeared in scholarly journals such as the Harvard Educational Review, American Ethnologist, Journal of Linguistic Anthropology, and Language in Society, as well as media outlets such as The New York Times, The Nation, NPR, and Univision.
