With this series, we will explore the ideas Anna Marie has been developing for Employing Linguistics over the past few years. First and foremost, the book has been created to share stories, but different – and different kinds – of stories about how the skills and training of linguistics may be employed. Why? Because the stories that we hear shape our sense of who we are and what we can DO.
Importantly, we will hear about exploration and navigation, from people actively engaged in those processes. And we will do so by reflecting on some of the tools that Anna Marie has found to be useful for holding the space to be curious: a metaphor: charting the stars; the acronym BRIGHTEN (to engage abundance thinking about the worlds of work that need our skills & training), the “superpowers” we linguists bring, and finally, why a story listening approach is so very helpful.
