Message 2: CALL FOR PAPERS: THE LANGUAGE-GENDER INTERFACE

Date: Mon, 15 Feb 93 17:05:56 ESCALL FOR PAPERS: THE LANGUAGE-GENDER INTERFACE
From: "Vicky Bergvall" <VBERGVALMTUS5.bitnet>
Subject: CALL FOR PAPERS: THE LANGUAGE-GENDER INTERFACE

THE LANGUAGE-GENDER INTERFACE:
THEORIES & METHODS FOR RESEARCH & TEACHING

CONFERENCE, JULY 16-18,1993
COLUMBUS, OHIO

ABSTRACTS DUE MARCH 26

The Committee on the Status of Women In Linguistics (COSWL)
of the Linguistic Society of America is sponsoring "The
Language-Gender Interface: Theories and Methods For Research
and Teaching," A conference to be held on July 16-18 in
conjunction with the 1993 Linguistic Institute in Columbus,
Ohio.

In keeping with the institute theme of "interfaces," the
focus of this conference will be on the interface between
language and gender research, as well as on the interfaces
between gender and such categories as race, ethnicity,
class, age, and sexuality; between different areas of
linguistics; between linguistics and other disciplines; and
between theoretical frameworks and research methods.

We invite abstracts that focus specifically on the
linguistic perspectives and methods in language and gender
research. As well as encouraging excellence in research
and writing on issues of language and gender, COSWL desires
a diverse body of speakers and papers which extend the range
of situations and populations presently analyzed in language
and gender research--we particularly invite submissions from
people from historically underrepresented groups.

We also hope to present a small number of short workshops,
e.g., on teaching language and gender; language and gender,
sex, and sexuality; women's career advancement; etc. If
you would like to propose a workshop, contact the conference
organizers.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

words. See the guidelines for "abstract contents" in the
