In their February 2019 Forum piece in Applied Linguistics, Bhattacharya et al. (2019) present longitudinal evidence that the American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL) still struggles to realize core principles of diversity and advocacy despite the passing of its 2013 resolution ‘Affirming Commitment to Promoting Diversity’ (AAAL 2013). They outline several trends in the available institutional data confirming that inequitable practices continue to hinder Scholars of Color from achieving full recognition within AAAL and, more broadly, the international, interdisciplinary field of applied linguistics. Echoing the work of Bhattacharya et al. in this regard, we reflect on parallel concerns in one of the component disciplinary realms of Applied Linguistics, namely the teaching of German language and culture (sometimes referred to as German Studies).
