The Politics of Language in the Americas: Power, Culture, History, and Resistance

Words and languages constitute essential tools in human interaction: in the formation of identities, in the development of cultures, and in the exercise of power and resistance. The ways in which we understand and make sense of our reality, and use our imagination to produce narratives in which we may project fantasies, desires, and obsessions, are critically shaped by words and languages. We use language to express love and hatred, to impose domination and to resist it, to reveal or mask reality, and to forge or contest collective identities.
