2023 EPS Conference: Social Justice and Education

In the past as in the present, educational practices, policies, and spaces have been closely entwined with both patterns of domination and movements for equity and justice. This year’s Education Policy Studies conference will explore the complex and contradictory ways that education can simultaneously create, exacerbate, and undermine structures of oppression. How are schools and education linked to historical and contemporary issues in political economy, metropolitan development, the justice system, families and neighborhoods, health and well-being, foreign policy, and environmental crises?  How have students, teachers, parents, and communities used education as a site and source of activism, to what ends, and with what consequences? To what extent can education serve as a tool for creating a more just world?

An Educational Model for Black Linguistic and Cultural Reparations

Join the Language Institute for a Zoom talk with Anne Charity Hudley. This current time of pandemics and protests is a visceral and constant reminder that the racial and economic legacies of slavery were not only unresolved but continue to determine the course of our daily lives. Few universities have attempted to address these past and present injustices through direct and explicit reparations. Charity Hudley expands on Labov (1972) and Rickford (1987). She reformulates the principle of debt incurred and the unequal partnership between linguistics and the African American speech community into a model for linguistic reparations.
