In this talk, Dr. Nelson Flores argues that academic language is not a neutral construct but instead embodies a raciolinguistic ideology that frames racialized students as linguistically deficient and in need of remediation. He proposes language architecture as an alternative framing of language and provides examples of how it can serve as a point of entry for resisting raciolinguistic ideologies in both research and practice.
