*Language and Social Justice: Case Studies on Communication & the Creation
of Just Societies*

Edited by Netta Avineri, Robin Conley, Laura R. Graham, Eric Johnson, and
Jonathan Rosa

>From bilingual education and racial epithets to gendered pronouns and
immigration discourses, language is a central concern in contemporary
conversations and controversies surrounding social inequality. Developed as
a collaborative effort by members of the American Anthropological
Association’s Language and Social Justice Task Force, this innovative
volume synthesizes scholarly insights on the relationship between patterns
of communication and the creation of more just societies. The volume, which
includes for the first time a set of case studies that illustrate with
striking detail ways that language is implicated in the construction and
perpetuation of social hierarchies, brings together leading scholars from a
range of language-related fields to provide concise overviews of key
concepts, debates, and approaches in the study of language and social
justice.  The volume will be divided into sections that address, in three
to four short case study essays, topics such as race and ethnicity, gender
and sexuality, education, hate speech, and criminal justice, activist or
“engaged” research. The wide-ranging chapters will present material focused
on various languages, nations, identities, inequalities, institutional
settings, and historical contexts. Collectively, the entries to this volume
will powerfully demonstrate how language provides a crucial vantage point
from which to understand and contribute to the achievement of social
justice. An introduction, co-authored by the editors, synthesizes recent
work and provides an overview of contemporary insights regarding the
relationship between patterns of communication and the creation of more
just societies.   This collection of concise case studies will be ideal for
adoption in courses in anthropology, linguistics, sociology, and
communication studies.
