How does language affect the way social change moves through a community or culture? Can ‘new’ language affect how we interact with each other and our ideas about social justice? Join us on Zoom along with scholars and activists from Italophone and Francophone communities to talk about these important questions about language and social justice.

Panelists:

  • Vincent Mousseau, RSW (Universeté de Montréal)
  • Julia Heim, PhD (University of Pennsylvania)
  • Julie Abbou, PhD (Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle)
  • Irene Facheris, MA (Activist, educator, writer and podcaster)
