LAGESEC 2013/ Eressos, Greece

Host Institution: University of the Aegean
Coordinating Institution: University of the Aegean
Website: https://lagesec2013.pns.aegean.gr/

Dates: 01-Jul-2013 - 14-Jul-2013
Location: Eressos, Lesvos island, Greece

Focus: The theme of LAGESEC 2013 is Language, gender, and sexuality: Discourses
of precarious citizenship in precarious times – the Balkan experience. aims at an
investigation of language, gender, and sexuality in relation to citizenship in the
Balkans from an interdisciplinary perspective. The major goal is to familiarize
students with the fact that the national narratives produced in the Balkans (and
elsewhere) are simultaneously gendered, sexed, and ethnic as well as linguistic.
I.e., national narratives use language to talk about the nation as an ethnic and
linguistic, but also as a gendered and sexed entity. Current research in the humanities
and the social sciences increasingly investigates the multiple, and highly entrenched,
indexical relations holding among these areas which are, in principle, distinct. It is these
indexical relations which inform LAGESEC 2013.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate


Special Qualifications:
LAGESEC 2013 is mainly addressed to MA and PhD students in relevant fields
in the humanities and the social sciences (e.g., sociolinguistics, anthropology,
gender/sexuality studies, Balkan studies). However, applications by senior
undergraduate students with a strong relevant background may also be considered
(based on availability).


Description:
LAGESEC 2013 is an interdisciplinary summer school focusing on language,
gender, and sexuality and its implications for citizenship in the geopolitical
area of the Balkans. It brings together scholars from a variety of fields in
the humanities and the social sciences in an attempt to enhance dialogue among
researchers in linguistics, anthropology, gender/sexuality studies, and Balkan
studies. As research on sexuality evolves and complements research on gender,
citizenship has emerged as a pivotal issue. Research on language and gender
and on language and sexuality has come to eventually focus on rights and
obligations, and especially on the evaluative (and often discriminating)
character of membership in a nation state relative to the potentially
precarious status of some citizens.
