“a lens that directs and distorts cognition"
The question is - are we even aware of it?
Two projects aimed at raising awareness of linguistic stereotyping
The materials available on this website are the products from two projects, Raising Awareness through Virtual Experiencing (RAVE), financed by the Swedish Research Council (VR), and A Cross-Cultural Perspective on Raising of Awareness through Virtual Experiencing (C-RAVE) , financed by the Wallenberg Foundation (MAW). The aim of the projects has been to develop methods for raising people's awareness of how stereotypical assumptions can be triggered through linguistic behaviour. On this website, we want to share our findings and methods, and also point to other resources that you as educators and researchers may find useful.

Secondly, we want to disseminate what we have done under the project frameworks. Below are some shortcuts to key pages:
