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 (July 1, 2011 – June 30, 2014). The journal

helped immensely to establish and strengthen the journal; we would like to
thank Bonnie for her outstanding contribution and hard work. Ann Weatherall
will continue to serve as co-editor for another two years (i.e. until the
end of 2012); the journal and the incoming co-editor will be benefiting
from Ann’s wealth of experience.
