IGALA 11 Conference

2021-03-02

The 11th biennial conference of the International Gender and Language Association (IGALA11) is hosted by Queen Mary University of London and will take place online from 22 - 24 June 2021.

The theme of IGALA11 2021 is Language and the Geopolitics of Gender. With this theme, IGALA aims to highlight the geopolitical dimensions of language, gender and sexuality scholarship. The goal is to showcase research on configurations of language, gender and sexuality from a diverse range of cultural, linguistic and geographical contexts, and in particular work that engages with issues of coloniality, globalisation, migration, (trans)nationalism and/or modernity. IGALA also aims to encourage discussions of methodological and epistemological diversity, and of the broader dynamics of knowledge creation and dissemination in the field.
