LSA Statement on Race

Annual Report 2017_SLHE_Fotor_Collage.jpg

With the Linguistic Society of America, we are now soliciting feedback on the LSA Statement on Race that Dr. Anne H. Charity Hudley and I drafted along with others.

Read the LSA Statement on Race. The draft of this statement came about as a result of a 2018 Linguistic Society of America Symposium, a summary of which may be found here.

The statement has several, interrelated aims: to address inequality in linguistics, to inform research on language and race and its intersections, to help empower and welcome people from various racial backgrounds into linguistics, and to broaden the conversation on race so that future work can best promote diversity and inclusion.
