Workshop: Linguistic Intersections of Language and Gender

  • by

We are pleased to announce the first international workshop on linguistic intersections of language and gender. It is to be held at Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, Germany, 20 – 21 July 2023. While we are planning a hybrid event to accommodate needs and wishes of all participants, we encourage speakers to partake in person.

The workshop is a collaboration of members of Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, the Association for Diversity in Linguistics, and FörderLinK e.V.

The main purpose of this workshop is to gather different linguistic perspectives of the intersection and interplay of current research on language and gender. We invite work on gender biases, gender-fair language, pronouns, and other gender-related topics from a broad selection of linguistic areas: phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, psycholinguistics, law/legal/forensic linguistics, and sociolinguistics.

The call for papers is now open. Find more information here. Abstract submission deadline is 20 April 2023.
