LANGUAGE, GENDER AND SEXUALITY
30 January 2020
Hello all IGALA-ers!
Allow me to introduce myself. My name's Ben Rowlett and I am the new blog co-ordinator on the IGALA Advisory Council. The blog has lain dormant for over a year now, after Federica's departure from the role (thank you Federica for all your hard work over the past few years), but I am really happy to break the silence with an excellent post from the new Editors of Gender and Language: Rodrigo Borba, Kira Hall, and Mie Hiramoto. Their thought provoking and timely post, "Discourse and the Geopolitics of Gender: Feminist Refusal Meets Emnity" links to the theme of this year's IGALA Conference in London and I'm sure you will enjoy reading what they have to say. Thank you so much Kira, Mie and Rod for taking the time to help us relaunch the IGALA blog!
With this relaunch I hope to keep the blog active by posting regular contributions from IGALA-ers, so please do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you have an idea for a post on any topic relevant to the field of language, gender and sexuality. This could be by sharing your own research projects, or by bringing other interesting topics to the attention of IGAL members and the wider community. Students are also strongly encouraged to write for the blog so please do let me know if you'd like to contribute something. It would be great if you could contact me before the end of February so I can get the next issue online as soon as possible.

That's all for now. Enjoy the post and I look forward to hearing from you very soon with your ideas for future issues.
