LANGUAGE, GENDER AND SEXUALITY

26 May 2020

 

Here at the IGALA blog we celebrate the new open access issue of Gender and Language and warmly welcome its new editors, Kira Hall, Mie Hiramoto, and Rodrigo Borba.

 

Their opening editorial discusses new global concerns surrounding the study of language, gender, and sexuality and introduces papers by Deborah Chirrey, Kunming Li and Jan Blommaert, Deyanira Rojas-Sosa, Emma Putland, and Grace Diabah. Paying tribute to the founding mothers of the field, the editors encourage researchers to confront masculinist rhetoric by finding new ways to understand its performative power.

 

We invite the IGALA community to respond to this call by contributing their thoughts, or reports on their own research, as short posts to be published in the next issue of the IGALA blog. Please email your posts to Ben (IGALA bog coordinator) at browlett@hkbu.edu.hk by the end of June 2020.

 

We look forward to receiving your responses!
