We Teach Languages Episode 144: Turkish German, Immigrant Authors, and Afrofuturism in Germany with Priscilla Layne

In ep 144, Stacey interviews Dr. Priscilla Layne about her teaching and research, both of which include the language and literature of immigrant and Black German communities. Priscilla describes how her background influences the way she interacts with and teaches texts and how that might be applicable in language classrooms. She also talks about Black German Afrofuturism and how this genre helps us imagine a new future. Teachers of German will find specific texts, authors, and examples in this episode, but all language teachers will find useful practices and ideas for centering target language users from diverse communities.
