First Call for Papers
The 8th International Gender and Language Association Conference will take place for the first time in Canada. The venue is Simon Fraser University, Harbor Centre, located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, BC. The New York Times describes Vancouver as, “…a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest.”
The conference will provide scholars and researchers worldwide with an opportunity to present their work and share ideas in the fields of language, gender, and sexuality.
- Bonny Norton, UBC, Lecture: Language, gender, and scholarship: Lessons I have learnt
- Marjorie Goodwin, UCLA, Lecture: The Embodied Interactive Constitution of Intimacy
- Jane Sunderland, Lancaster, Lecture: Marginal texts and marginalized readers? Eric, Martin and Harry Potter
- Chantal Hebert, CBC Journalist and Broadcaster, French and English Politics, Lecture: Breaking the silos: one journalist's experience with reporting on Canadian politics in French and English
We're very excited to welcome the unapologetically bold and passionately Canadian storyteller, Ivan Coyote, as our performance guest of honor.
Submissions are invited for presentations in oral or multimodal formats including papers, posters, panels, round tables, and performances that address all aspects of gender, sexuality, discourse and language. Submissions will be accepted in French as well as English and be incorporated into the appropriate language stream. Please see the attached information sheet for more specific information on how to apply. The information can also be found on the website.
