Assistant Professor 2023-2024 Academic Year: Language and Social Justice

Language and Social Justice: Our ideal candidate will have an active and creative research and teaching program that focuses on the relationship between language and struggles for social justice particularly as they occur around race, indigeneity, gender, disability, class and nationality. Also of interest is how language becomes an instrument for perpetuating systems of exclusion and inequality, and at the same time a vehicle for framing alternative visions that challenge such systems. Areas of specialization may include: language and globalization, including bilingualism and multilingualism; language and decolonization; language and migration; language and learning systems; language and media culture; multimodality; political, moral, and legal discourses related to language; and ecolinguistics (the relation between language and the environment). We are open to candidates trained in communication, relevant areas of linguistics (such as sociolinguistics) or other relevant fields.
