Description

Dr. Jennifer Leeman from George Mason University will present her research on language attitudes and identity formation in the heritage language classroom so that the UW community can participate in a dialogue on diversity in the second language classroom. This talk is part of a larger project funded in part by the Humanities Innovation Seed Grant through the Dean's office. This project explores through qualitative research how the formal study of Spanish as a heritage language shapes UW students’ attitudes towards their minoritized language and the construction of their bilingual identities.
