Dr. Almeida Jacqueline Toribio Lecture presents:

Language, Race, and Identity Among Dominicans

Almeida Jacqueline Toribio is Professor of Linguistics in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at The University of Texas at Austin. Her scholarly interests reside at the intersection of linguistics and the sociology of language. Her research itinerary in linguistics examines the ways in which the structural facts of contact and rural varieties of Spanish can be brought to bear on issues central to linguistic theorizing, which has proceeded largely by reference to the language knowledge and use of highly literate, monolingual individuals.
