Search for new co-editor for Gender and Language

The journal of Gender and Language is soliciting nominations (by others or
by candidates) for the position of co-editor.

Gender and Language is the journal of the International Gender and Language
Association (IGALA). The journal appears twice a year. The journal
encourages discussion and debate about the implications of different
definitions of gender and different approaches to analyzing the production
and interpretation of texts and speech. It welcomes research employing a
range of linguistic approaches (e.g. conversation analysis, discourse and
text analysis, ethnography of communication, pragmatics, variationist
sociolinguistics, interactional sociolinguistics, stylistics) and from a
variety of disciplines, including linguistics, anthropology, women and
gender studies, education, philosophy, psychology, folklore, sociology,
communication studies, queer studies, literary and cultural studies, as it
aims to foster interdisciplinary discussion and dialogue among these

For further information on the journal, please see

The position has a 3 year term (Sept. 1, 2009 – Aug. 31, 2012). The
journal has two co-editors, who rotate off at staggered intervals. Bonnie
McElhinny will continue to serve as co-editor for another two years (i.e.
through July 2011).

Interested candidates should send CVS, and a brief statement of interest in
the position by July 15, 2009 to Bonnie McElhinny, Director, Women and
Gender Studies Institute, University of Toronto (bonnie.mcelhinnyutoronto.ca).

Bonnie, the editorial board, the publisher and IGALA would like to thank
Sara Mills for her work as founding co-editor of the journal. Sara played a
crucial role in writing proposals for the journal, finding a publisher, and
establishing the journal on solid ground in the first 3 years of its operation.
