Meeting Description:

The Conference will offer a broad view of research on language, gender, and
sexuality around the world. The event will consist of a series of plenary
sessions, 20-minute papers, and posters dealing with any aspect of one of the
most flourishing fields of research within Humanities. IGALA's increasing
internationalization is a fact -the 2006 Valencia conference will be the first
one to be held outside the USA or Britain. Hopefully, therefore, a fruitful
debate will take place between researchers from English-speaking countries and
those from other areas of the world, particularly from Mediterranean countries.
Researchers and postgraduates working in any of the fields contributing to
research on gender, language, and sexuality -discourse studies, psychology,
literary studies, psychoanalysis, anthropology, pragmatics, stylistics,
linguistics, philosophy, conversation analysis, feminist studies, etc.- are
warmly welcomed to Valencia in November 2006.
