American Apprehensions: A Semiotics of Racial and Linguistic Profiling // Jonathan Rosa, Stanford University

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 2:00pm

Apr 28, 2021, 2 – 4pm EDT

This presentation reconceptualizes racial and linguistic profiling by drawing on semiotic insights to explore the institutional co-naturalization of language and race. Whereas US-based racial and linguistic profiling is often understood as a problem reflected by discriminatory behavior at the individual level, Jonathan Rosa focuses on the institutionalized processes that shape and often overdetermine individual construals of profiled entities.
