Western Today staff

Judy Pine, an associate professor of anthropology at Western Washington University, will discuss the linguistic practices that maintain and reinforce institutional racism at a special event from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 3, in Miller Hall Room 139.

In her "Crash Course in Linguistic Racism" talk, Pine will discuss both subtle and in-your-face examples of mock language and how they reinforce structures of racism. She'll also discuss her belief that recognizing and analyzing these relationships are crucial steps in building an equitable world.
