Overcoming Linguistic Bias in Academic Publication

Overcoming Linguistic Bias in Academic Publication flyer
Thursday, December 16, 2021
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Prof. Gaillynn Clements (Duke University) and Prof. Marnie Jo Petray (Slippery Rock, University of Pennsylvania)

You are invited to join us for a candid conversation on language discrimination in the world of academia with Professors Marnie Jo Petray and Gaillyn Clements, editors of the book: Linguistic Discrimination in US Higher Education. In their groundbreaking book, they explore the roots of language discrimination and what the academic community needs to do to support NNES scholars better. .

The language you use to express yourself, your form and style of communication, and even the examples you use have a direct impact on how your research is perceived in your field and adopted among your peers.

But what if breakthrough and innovative research is being rejected by reviewers simply because it isn't written in 'standard English?'

We are delighted to welcome Professor Marnie Jo Petray, of Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania and Professor Gaillynn Clements, of Duke University, co-editors of the new book: Linguistic Discrimination in US Higher Education, to explore the question of language bias in academia.

December 16 at 8:30 PM Israel time/ 6:30 PM UK/ 1:30 PM EST on Zoom
