Meeting Description:

This will be the second conference on language and gender relations organized by the Department of Philology of Silesian School of Economics and Languages in Katowice. The main objective of the conference is a reflection on the socio-cultural concept of gender identity, and its final effect will be a publication that combines knowledge about gender in terms of humanities. The organizers therefore invite representatives from various fields of the humanities (philology, philosophy, art, cultural studies, religious studies, sociology, psychology and related fields), in order to study gender from a broad interdisciplinary perspective.

Call for Papers:

Papers in English or Polish are welcome. We would like the discussion to focus on the following issues:

'Gender' in the language, culture and literature
Prototypical and stereotypical perception of gender
Gender in the linguistic picture of the world
Gender linguistics
The concept of gender in the humanities
Biological and socio-cultural concepts of sex and gender
Gender in language acquisition
Determinants of gender in language
Gender and linguistic asymmetries
Gender performativity
Gender images in contemporary media

Paper abstracts together with additional information should be sent before 31 March 2012 to our email address:
