Abstract

The authors consider the implications of speaking out and remaining silent in the aftermath of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. They reflect on the forms of speech available to and expected of educators and educational anthropologists in order to raise questions about whose voices are heard or ignored in the current public discourse. Drawing from their language-focused work alongside Latino immigrant communities, the authors raise questions about when and how to honor and break silences.
