Taming My Wild Tongue: Language as Revolutionary Action

Nydia Flores (Education Psychology)
Ebelia Hernandez (Education Psychology)

Rudyard Kipling once said "Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." To this end, this seminar will explore and address the use of language in developing our identities and cultural expression. Several topics will be discussed, including the pros and cons of “coming out bilingual”, ethnic labels, slang and idiomatic expressions, language and diaspora, an examination of language change and the digital divide, language policies and practices, and language and cultural diversity.
