A Roadmap for Inclusion in Linguistics
Anne H. Charity Hudley, University of California, Santa Barbara
The University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) is the highest ranked and highest resourced Minority Serving Institution in the world. Considering the designation as both an honor and a call to action, the UCSB Linguistics Department is working to make significant changes to its faculty and student recruitment, its undergraduate and graduate curriculum, and its research and outreach focus.
Charity Hudley will focus on methods and models used to engage people in inclusion in linguistics from secondary school through emeritus status, and she will also share challenges that our department has met along the way with a focus on interdepartmental, institutional, and disiplinary concerns. She will focus on three programs that UCSB Linguistics has developed in recent years: School Kids Investigating Language in Life and Society (SKILLS), UCSB-HBCU Scholars in Linguistics, and the Sneak Peek student recruitment event.
The talk will run 3:00-4:30 pm, and an online reception will follow immediately afterwards.
