Meeting Description: The 10th Nordic conference on language and gender will be held at the University of Akureyri, Iceland, 20-21 October 2017. This is the first time that the conference is held in Iceland, but it is an important forum for theoretical and methodological discussions amongst Nordic researchers with an interest in language and gender. The conference has its roots in language research, e.g. sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, language history and dialectology, but is is no less open for contributions from fields such as sociology, gender research, feminist theories, education and more.
