Encouraging the Expression of Linguistic Identity in Writing, Speaking, and Arguing

Category Code-Meshed Academic Works

Here you will find examples of scholars who have used code-meshing in a variety of ways. Some consistently use it as a writing strategy for an entire essay, or even an entire book. Others use it in their academic works at strategic junctures to make a point. In the past, it has been common to use code-meshing across registers (often in the title), and more recently there has been a move towards using code-meshing across languages and dialects.

In all cases, code-meshing allows scholars to reveal and express their distinct, insightful perspectives. They take ownership of their language in order to express their voice, presence, and identity as a communicator and/or to take a stance on a particular topic.
