VERBAL-Workshop 'Sex & Sprache / Sex & Language', 6 - 7 December 2009, Annual
Conference of Austrian Linguistics (ÖLT), University of Salzburg
Even though there might be a biological foundation of sexuality, how we behave
sexually is also - or perhaps even primarily - a cultural phenomenon, being
informed by socially shared systems of beliefs and attitudes. This workshop will
explore the role that language plays in shaping and constructing these systems.
The VERBAL-workshop 'Sex & Language' is the third in the series '[x] & Language'
initiated by Eva Lavric. It will be organized by Marietta Calderón und Georg
Marko. The workshop will be part of the official programme of the Annual
Conference of Austrian Linguistics (ÖLT) at the University of Salzburg. The
conference fee for the ÖLT will probably be 20 euro.
