Organised by the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS)

Part of Black History Month programme of events

Speaker: Gabriel Nascimento (Federal University of Southern Bahia, Brazil)
Chair: Jamille Pinheiro Dias (ILCS/CLACS)

At this event, Gabriel Nascimento will present his book Racismo linguístico: os subterrâneos da linguagem e do racismo ("Linguistic Racism: Beneath the Surface of Language and Racism," published by Editora Letramento in Brazil and still unpublished in English). This work holds interest not only for language scholars but for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the complexities of racial inequality. With his analysis of the relationship between language and racism, Nascimento exposes the shortcomings of traditional linguistics, continues the anti-colonial project initiated by Franz Fanon, and engages in dialogue with contemporary decolonial critique, paving the way for a renewal in studies of languages, cultures, and societies. 

Gabriel Nascimento, a professor at the Federal University of Southern Bahia, holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of São Paulo and was previously a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to Racismo linguístico: os subterrâneos da linguagem e do racismo, he is the author of Este fingimento e outros poema" (García) and O maníaco das onze e meia (Multifoco), among other publications.
