Call for Blogs, Language Rights Blog, NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad.
About the blog :
Understanding the meaning of “language” and its impact is crucial in recognizing its power and how it shapes the world around us. Language is more than a means of communication. It is intrinsically linked to the development of individual consciousness and a sense of group / cultural identity.
In a world where languages ââare not treated equally, a person’s ability to speak the dominant language becomes a privilege. Linguistic privilege determines the accommodation of a linguistic minority in terms of access to social, political and educational institutions. It further intersects with privileges revolving around race, nation and social class, thus manifesting itself as a site of discrimination and exclusion for minority languages. It is therefore essential that the right to use one’s language in the private sphere as well as in the public sphere be protected.
The Language Rights Blog aims to shed light on the prejudices suffered by linguistically marginalized people and to engage in a multidisciplinary approach to language and language rights.
