I am publishing two excellent student papers simultaneously as they are almost the flip side of the same issue – namely privilege and what comes tripping off the tongues of the privileged.

The second paper is “The Insidious Language of Privilege” and discusses how privilege expresses itself in “every language.”
Either of these papers are excellent on their own, but taken together they are are more than magnified in their meaning. The language that flows so freely, and the gut wrenching dilemma that language can cause..
