The Department of Linguistics, University of Toronto, will host the Toronto
Workshop on Phonetics, Gender and Sexual Orientation on November 18-19, 2005.

There will be six invited talks, each with two formal discussants. Other
interested parties are invited to attend and to take part in the general
discussions after each talk. The speakers are Henry Rogers, Ron Smyth, Sally
McConnell-Ginet, Gerard Docherty, Kevin Heffernan, Murray Munro, and Keith Johnson.

The goal of the Workshop is to stimulate discussion and research on acoustic and
articulatory characteristics of male vs. female speech in general, compared with
individuals whose speech is perceived to be gay- or lesbian-sounding. The
invited speakers and discussants have been chosen so as to represent a wide
range of research traditions and theoretical stances, including queer/gender
theory, dialect acquisition, sociophonetic variation by gender, and the acoustic
markers of gender and sexual orientation.

This Workshop is dedicated to Prof. Henry Rogers on the occasion of his
retirement from the Department of Linguistics, University of Toronto.
