Meeting Description:

5th BAAL Gender and Language Special Interest Group Event (GaLSig):
Gender and Language in the Public Space

Date: Tuesday 20th September 2011; 10.00am to 4pm.
Place: Centre for Interdisciplinary Research into Language and Diversity,
Aston University, Birmingham, UK.

Invited Speakers:

Professor Deborah Cameron, University of Oxford
Dr Louise Mullany, University of Nottingham
Dr Lia Litosseliti, City University, London
Dr Jo Angouri, University of West England
Dr Sylvia Shaw, Middlesex University
Dr Judith Baxter, Aston University

The focus of this event is on theoretical and empirical research that
examines gender in relation to public and institutional discourse in domains
such as Parliament, government, business, leadership, the media, law,
education, academia, medicine and religion. During the day, we hope to
address some of the following questions:

- What can the discipline of Gender and Language contribute to an
understanding of gendered discourses in public settings?
- Are women disadvantaged in certain public settings, or is this now the
wrong question to ask?
- To what extent should scholars aim to make their research available to
users and practitioners?
- Where scholars have been involved in community engagement, how
successful has this been?
- With Research Councils currently prioritising projects with social and
economic impact, what kind of impact can gender and language
researchers make? At least one session will be devoted to Research
Council funded projects on this topic, and more broadly, to what constitutes
a successful grant application in our field.

Registration opens: March 2011

Fees for the event: £35 non-BAAL members; £30 BAAL members; £20 full-
time students.

Please register on: http://www1.aston.ac.uk/lss/news-events/conferences-
seminars/gender-and-language-interest-group-event/

Abstracts will be available on the website soon!

The day will comprise papers by the invited speakers who will present their
work in 30-minute sessions followed by time for a brief discussion. At the
end of the day, we will hold a plenary to discuss some of the key issues
raised.

Papers will be approximately 30 minutes long with 10 minutes for questions.
