    Abstract:
    Just as I was finishing up a draft of this BILD post, I came across a very relevant and timely blog post on my Twitter feed, Can we ever unthink linguistic nationalism?, by Dr. Ingrid Piller and Dr. Aneta Pavlenko. I’d like to add to this discussion and dialogue by proposing the potential of transepistemic language education. Tranepistemic language education is a way of learning, teaching, knowing, and being which enables respectful and non-hierarchical knowledge co-creation while we engage with languages, peoples, cultures, and lands. I present transepistemic language education as a means to foster more spaces where we can: (1) (un)learn cognitive and linguistic imperialism in language learning and teaching, and (2) envisage languaging that is not only in service of the nation state.
