Tessa Pellmann
Green Bay Area Philosopher's Cafe


Do people manipulate their use of language to attain membership to a given community or, alternatively, to seek their way out of it? In what ways do language ideologies influence the social and linguistic practices that help build individuals’ cultural and ethnic identities? In this conversation, we explore the social meaning of language and the role that linguistic practices and perceptions play in the family, the community and the work environment. Participants in this Philosopher's Cafe will be invited to reflect on their own use of language and its impact on their sense of identity and belonging to a community.
