Book Description

This volume examines different forms of language and dialect discrimination on US campuses, where relevant protections in K-12 schools and the workplace are absent. Real-world case studies at intersections with class, race, gender, and ability explore pedagogical and social manifestations and long-term impacts of this prejudice between and among students, faculty, and administrators. This book will be useful for students in language & power and language variety courses, among others; researchers in sociolinguistics, education, identity, and social justice; and diversity officers looking to understand and – with chapters by Walt Wolfram and Christina Higgins – combat this bias.
