1. Tasker-Mueller, Barbara J. The Impact of the 1980-81 Literacy Campaign on the English Kriol Language Spoken on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua.

Degree: MA, Anthropology, 2015, Western Washington University

In my thesis I argue that the post-revolutionary Literacy Campaign (1980-81) was truly a watershed-moment in the cultural and political life of the people on the Atlantic Coast of Nicaragua. Its impact was felt not only on the Kriol language but also on the Costeño (people of the Coast) identity when it was shown to be necessary to translate the initial literacy materials from Spanish into English and it created a wider sense of empowerment and legitimacy among the Costeños as a group. I examine the work being done by the Linguistic Research and Revitalization Institute (IPILC) and the dilemmas faced in claiming and implementing the linguistic rights that were granted under the 1987 Law of Autonomy for the Caribbean Coast Regions. The problems I discuss in this case are not unique to Nicaragua’s Creoles, nor to Black diaspora cultures, they are merely part of larger issues which affect all minoritized groups who seek to assert the legitimacy of their languages and cultures within hegemonic discourses around cultural difference. Advisors/Committee Members: Pine, Judith M. S., Loucky, James, Gynan, Shaw Nicholas, 1954-.
