From bilingual education and racial epithets to gendered pronouns and immigration discourses, language is a central concern in contemporary conversations and controversies surrounding social inequality. Developed as a collaborative effort by American Anthropological Association’s Language and Social Justice Task Force members, this innovative volume synthesizes scholarly insights on the relationship between patterns of communication and the creation of more just societies. The book includes 24 case studies by scholars and practitioners focused on Language & Race, Language & Education, Language & Health, Language & Social Activism, and Language, Law, & Policy.
