Abstract:  Language has been regarded as a rather peripheral topic in discussions or movements for social justice. However, recently, there is heightened awareness about the omnipresence of linguistic injustice in society. Where can we find structural and behavioral discrimination on the basis of language? And what can we do about it in our society, on our campus? The aim of this lecture is to pay due attention to language as a key to respecting diversity and enhancing integration.
