Event 11

Ethnographies of Language, Gender & Sexuality

The 11th meeting of the British Association of Applied Linguistics Special Interest Group on Language, Gender and Sexuality was held on 26th April 2018 at Goldsmiths, University of London. The aim of this event was to highlight the important contributions that ethnography as a methodology can make to the study of language, gender and sexuality. The event encouraged a discussion between language, gender and sexuality scholars and linguistic ethnographers, raising questions of theory and methodology, and, above all, offering an insight into a range of current ethnographic studies of language, gender & sexuality in both private and institutional contexts within and outside the UK.
