The International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life of Brandeis University is pleased to announce the launch of the Language, Culture and Justice Hub.
This online platform was created to serve as a clearinghouse of scholarship, commentary and contacts for people working at the nexus of language, culture and justice. Its principal aim, stated on the About the Hub page, is to centralize a dispersed set of fields engaged in work around this nexus of issues. The Hub is intended for practitioners as well as scholars and researchers.
The Hub currently features recent news and commentary relevant to language, culture and justice; a regular Spotlight feature that explores critical topics in this area; and thematic pages with extensive resources, the first of which focuses on language and culture in processes of international criminal justice. The site also offers profiles of the Hub’s inaugural members, whose professions range from interpreters and translators, to researchers and scholars, to activists on diverse topics. Other Hub features and activities will be explored in the coming months.
There are several ways that you can become part of the Language, Culture and Justice Hub:
- Join a listserv to receive news and updates
- Contribute a Spotlight feature on a relevant topic
- Suggest resources and news items for the Hub
- Become a full member with a profile page
Although the site language is English, we welcome profile pages, links to scholarship, and original commentary in any language.
We hope you will explore the Hub and provide feedback and suggestions. If you wish to join us, send an email to LCJHub@brandeis.edu.
