Jonathan Rosa examines the linguistic characteristics that influence culture and identity in the Latina/o community. The rapid rise of the U.S. Latina/o population, now the nation’s largest demographic minority group, has heightened concerns about the future of American identity and brought increased attention to the institutional management of ethnolinguistic difference. In order to understand the creation of the ethnoracial and linguistic categories that shape Latina/o identities and experiences, Rosa is developing a grant entitled, “Learning Latina/o Ethnolinguistic Identities across the U.S.” for the National Science Founding Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. For this project he proposes to conduct ethnographic and sociolinguistic fieldwork indistinctive Latina/o contexts which would examine the creation of the ethno-racial and linguistic categories that shape Latina/o identities and experiences.
