Episode 3.6: Community is Key


We are so excited about this episode, we are doing backflips! Well, we are trying to anyways...

Sal is a PhD candidate at the University of Texas at Austin who works with language attitudes and identity among Latinx communities. For Sal, community is key not only in his research but also in his everyday life. He sits down with the GradLings to talk about bringing the focus of language research back to the people and communities that (socio)linguists work with. Our chat also touches on how to make this research accessible to these communities we explore. Among colleagues and mentors in the field, Sal talks about how community also plays a big role in the complexities of academic life, especially when you share your work among different disciplines (like most of us do!).
