Latina/o Academics' Resilient Qualities in Their Linguistically Diverse Practices
Cavazos, Alyssa G.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v15 n1 p69-86 Jan 2016
Emphasis placed on academic writing in English may create challenges for multilingual academics as they negotiate diverse languages. Based on personal interviews with bilingual Latina/o academics in rhetoric and composition, this study reveals that their language practices reflect diverse resilient qualities at various stages in their academic career. This process of adaptation illustrates Latina/o academics' rhetorical awareness of their position in the academy and how resilient language practices help them succeed in higher education.
