The ongoing collaboration brings together faculty from Chicana and Chicano Studies, Education, and Linguistics as well as graduate students from numerous disciplines. The research presentations focus on race, language, education, and power through the lens of the multi-sited UCSB-based academic outreach and sociolinguistic justice program SKILLS (School Kids Investigating Language in Life and Society).
