Save the date: Lavender Languages and Linguistics goes global!

The Lavender Languages and Linguistics conference, dedicated to language and sexuality research, has run annually since 1993. In February 2016, scholars exploring aspects of LGBTQ language and representation will again meet in Washington D.C. for LavLang23.

In April 2017 – for the first time in its history – scholars will convene in the UK, with the conference being hosted at the University of Nottingham. LavLang will retain its inclusive, supportive atmosphere, and students and scholars with an interest in language and sexuality (broadly defined) will be welcome.
