THOMAS STEPHENS

This class will confront issues of language and cultural norms in greater Latin America that have varied from related models of social justice in North America. It will consider the many ways in which language varieties are associated with discrimination and attempt to answer to specific instances in which language upholds discrimination and injustice. Topics will include the fairness of bilingual education in multilingual settings, racial epithets in civil society, gendered pronouns, discourses regarding migrants/migrations/immigration, patterns of communication that create more just societies, historical views of feminist speech, unconsciously misogynist and paternal language patterns, and accounts of BLM-related movements in Spanish America and Brazil. There will be invited guest speakers. Projects will revolve around real speech and its connection to a civil and just world. Taught in Spanish.
