Meeting Description: The Lavender Languages & Linguistics conference series has a rich history of examining language use and representation in relation to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and/or queer life, as well as language and sexuality more broadly. In April 2017, LavLang will be held in the UK for the first time, having been hosted annually by American University (Washington, D.C.) since 1993. We anticipate that, by bringing LavLang24 to Europe, more students and scholars with an interest in language and sexuality will be able to join our conversation.

Keynote Speakers:

Dr Helen Sauntson, York St John University (UK),
Professor Paul Baker, Lancaster University (UK).

The conference will also include remarks on the past and future of language and sexuality research by Professor William Leap, American University (USA).

The conference series proudly maintains a ''no attitude'' atmosphere, which will continue at LavLang24 in Nottingham: all attendees should feel welcome in what will be a supportive and collaborative space.
Linguistic Subfield: Anthropological Linguistics; Applied Linguistics; General Linguistics; Sociolinguistics
LL Issue: 27.3476

The following session(s) will be held during this meeting:
Food for Thought: Exploring the Relationship between LGBTQ+ Identities and Linguistic Representations of Culinary Practices
Corpus Linguistics in Language and Sexuality Studies
