Join the Centre for Educational Excellence, the Student Learning Commons, Student Services, and Fraser International College in celebrating the linguistic diversity of SFU’s community in a week-long series of events, including speakers, discussions, workshops, and more!

Workshop Details:

Linguistic bigotry, linguistic prejudice, or linguicism—has been defined by Tove Skutnabb-Kangas (2000) as “ideologies and structures that are used to legitimate, effectuate and reproduce an unequal division of power and resources between groups, which are defined on the basis of language.” In this workshop, SLC coordinators Tim Mossman and Hermine Chan delve into the lived experiences of overt, covert, and systemic linguicism in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada, and in academia. The live session may be recorded for later use.
