“Baltimore: An Incubator of Linguistic Diversity” @Light City 2018


I was so honored to give a talk for EduLab, part of the Labs@Light City segment of Baltimore’s 2018 Light City social innovation conference!  In my talk, “Baltimore: An Incubator of Linguistic Diversity,” I discussed how the way Baltimoreans of all stripes talk — including the ways in which we say even just the name of our city — reflects who we are and where we come from. Language in Baltimore is diverse, dynamic, and innovative, and is an identity and cultural resource that we must nurture — especially in our students, who are the voices of the next generation of thinkers, speakers, and writers right here in Baltimore.
