The International Gender and Language Association Conference:
Shifting Visions: Gender, Sexuality, Discourse, and Language
The conference will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, from June 5th through to June 7th, 2014. It will be held at Simon Fraser University’s downtown campus, Harbour Centre.
We hope the www.IGALA8.com website will be helpful in answering any questions you may have. Please submit an abstract of your own work and/or encourage any colleagues or graduate-level students to do so by November 30, 2013.
The theme of the conference is Shifting Visions to inspire fresh and original thinking and perspectives concerning gender and language research. Every two years, IGALA members from all over the world meet at the IGALA conference. The 2014 conference is the first ever to be held in Canada. It is a great opportunity to connect with others in our field from around the world and challenge our own work in constructive ways.
