Meeting Description:

They, Hirself, Xem, and You is a conference bringing together linguists and other researchers working on topics relating to nonbinary pronouns in English. The goal is to both raise the profile of this research within linguistics and other disciplines, and to build resources that can be used by educators, policy makers, community advocates, and researchers in other fields. It will include two interleaved tracks of talks and presentations: one featuring research from linguistics, and one featuring scholars and practitioners from other fields.

2nd Call for Papers:

Extended abstract deadline: April 19, 2019

They, Hirself, Xem, and YOU is a three-day conference bringing together linguists and other researchers working on topics relating to nonbinary pronouns in English. The conference will include two tracks of talks and presentations: one featuring research from linguistics (L-Track), and one featuring scholars and practitioners from other fields (O-Track). Presenters will also participate in discussion groups working to build a resource compiling information and resources on nonbinary pronouns, for general use.

This call is for L-track presentations; for information on the O-track call please visit https://educ.queensu.ca/they2019/callforpapers

We invite L-Track proposals for talks presenting research relating to nonbinary gender in language, or language use in nonbinary and trans communities. Proposals are welcome from any subdiscipline of linguistics, including (but not limited to) sociolinguistics, theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and applied linguistics.

Talks will be 20 minutes long; depending on the volume of submissions a poster session may be added to the program. L-track proposals will be selected on the basis of blind review.

Abstracts submitted to the L-track should be one page (minimum font size 11pt), including any linguistic examples; a second page may be attached with references and figures, if needed. Abstracts should be submitted via email to theyconference2019gmail.com, with ''L-Track Proposal'' in the subject line, by the deadline of April 19, 2019 (11PM Eastern). Please ensure that the abstract, including its file name, does not include any information identifying the author(s).

There will be no registration fee for the conference; information on pre-registration can be found on the conference website.
