Is this for you?
This is the 10th meeting of the British Association for Applied Linguistics Special Interest Group on Language, Gender and Sexuality. In April 2017, the event theme is ‘Language, Discrimination and Conflict’.
At this event, we will explore the ways in which language can ignite and perpetuate discriminatory practices, yet can also be a vehicle through which such discrimination can be resisted or challenged.
We will also consider how conflict between opposing groups or norms associated with gender and/or sexuality may be linguistically constructed, rationalised, and defused.
The event brings together a range of researchers interested in issues of language, discrimination and conflict in relation to gender and/or sexuality, and explores possible ways in which these issues can be addressed.
