Supporting Scholarly Exchange About Communication Across the Disciplines

Now Available: Asao Inoue's Above The Well: An Antiracist Argument From a Boy of Color 

In Above The Well, Asao Inoue explores race, language, and literacy education through a combination of scholarship, personal history, and even a bit of fiction. Inoue comes to terms with his own languaging practices in his upbringing and schooling while also arguing that there are racist aspects to English language standards promoted in schools and civic life. His discussion includes the ways students and everyone in society are judged by and through tacit racialized languaging, which he labels White language supremacy and which he argues contributes to racialized violence in the world today. It is available at https://wac.colostate.edu/books/perspectives/above.
