Jonathan Rosa – CV –┬áJune 2015

As a sociocultural and linguistic anthropologist, my work theorizes the co-naturalization of language and race as a way of apprehending modes of societal exclusion and inclusion across institutional domains. Specifically, I analyze the interplay between linguistic discrimination, racial marginalization, and educational inequality in urban contexts. I collaborate with local communities to track these phenomena and develop tools for understanding and eradicating the forms of disparity to which they correspond. My community-based approach to research, teaching, and service reflects a vision of scholarship as a platform for imagining and enacting more just societies.
