Raciolinguistics

How Language Shapes Our Ideas About Race

Edited by H. Samy Alim, John R. Rickford, and Arnetha F. Ball

  • Brings together a critical mass of scholars to form a new field dedicated to theorizing and analyzing language and race together-raciolinguistics.
  • Breaks new ground by integrating the deep theoretical knowledge gained from race and ethnic studies, and the ethnographic rigor and sensibility of anthropology, with the fine-grained, detailed analyses that are the hallmark of linguistic studies
  • Takes a comparative, international look across a wide variety of sites that comprise some of the most contested racial and ethnic contexts in the world, from rapidly changing communities in the U.S. and Europe to locations in South Africa, Brazil, and Israel
  • Builds upon and expands Alim and Smitherman's ground-breaking analysis in Articulate While Black: Barack Obama, Language, and Race in the U.S. (Oxford University Press, 2012) to form a new field dedicated to racing language and languaging race.
