In this first-ever Art + Conversation podcast, Dr. Ghada Gherwash, the founder of the Colby linguistic justice group, will lead a roundtable discussion on the topic of linguistic justice with some of the founding members of the group. Since language is a prominent theme within the current exhibition, Miracles on the Border: Retablos of Mexican Migrants to the United States, this roundtable will explore how we can encourage a more respectful attitude toward diverse linguistic practices and traditions.

Founding members of the linguistic justice group: 

  • Ghada Gherwash, PhD., Interim Director of the Farnham Writers’ Center and Multilingual Writing Specialist, 
  • Masi Ngidi-Brown, PhD., Director of International Student Programs and Associate Director of the Pugh Center,
  • Sam Plasencia, PhD., Visiting Assistant Professor of English **
  • Nicki Chaput ‘22,
  • Chioma Ezuma-Ngwu ‘22,
  • Riley Kelfer ‘22, and
