Description of the event

CARFfI invites you to the roundtable discussion organized by Parlons avec Confiance (PAC) 'Identifying and Analyzing Language Discrimination’. This conversation will highlight sociolinguist Professor Philippe Blanchet’s concept of language discrimination known as ‘glottophobia.’ During this discussion, we will define the notion and explore its impact on research in the Breton and Acadian contexts and in Francophone communities in Canada, more broadly.
