We don’t give much thought to names, but we probably ought to.  In this emotive podcast Prof. I. M. Nick, the current Editor-in-Chief of NAMES, the scholarly journal for onomastic research(“Onomastics” is the formal name for the scientific study of names and naming) discusses name-based prejudice and how incredibly harmful to individuals and groups.  Teachers have a critical role to play in calling attention to this problem and helping to end societal tolerance of name-based prejudice and discrimination.  You can find out more about the American Name Society and access the ANS Journal.  If you would like to get in touch with Iman please do email her:
