Vulnerabilidad de lenguas en Durham, NC: un análisis geolingüístico y socioeconómico
Repository Usage Stats
In the context of linguistic rights, I present a series of cartographic observations about the growing diversity of languages in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. This work’s purposes are to identify vulnerable populations through language and related socioeconomic trends, share information in an accessible manner to community members, and discuss methods to promote linguistic equity. I explore the right to speak one’s own language, linguistic rights in the Americas, and their importance in Raleigh-Durham-Cary, a multilingual area. I share the information about local linguistic diversity gathered from interviews with community advocates. The methodology of creating the maps and conducting statistical analyses is then explained. I present the maps and make observations about diverse language groups’ characteristics. Finally, I observe which language communities are the most vulnerable.
