Bringing Linguistic Justice into DEI: Activism through Institutional Ethnography
Date & Time
Friday, March 31, 2023, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

This workshop will consist of two parts. First, we will present an overview of our institutional ethnography exploring how language is lived on our campus, with a view toward creating more equitable language practices, particularly around the treatment of language in writing instruction. Second, using the methodology of our study as a framework, we will facilitate two consciousness-raising activities among participants to identify potential gaps and/or contradictions between how their own campuses talk about inclusivity when it comes to linguistic diversity and the actual practices that would promote equity for students no matter their language backgrounds. Through these activities, participants will identify areas for future intervention on their campus and/or across CUNY.
