Call for Papers: Languages, Cultures and Gender

Founded within the body of the Rectorship of Ege University, the European Languages and Cultures Research and Application Centre (ADIKAM) announces a conference. 

The conference theme covers issues relating to gender with special emphasis on how language and culture defines, affects, influences, shapes and visualises gender in a wide spectrum ranging from the individual to the communal across an array of disciplines. Being ideologically, politically and socially constructed, language, culture and gender all intersect at some point. And it is this intersection that we wish to explore comparatively from varying perspectives. Concerned with the HOW and WHY’s the aim of the conference is to analyse the content of gender within the very bones of language and culture.

Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:

Gender theories in linguistics, discourse analysis, textual analysis
Transmission of gender in translated works
Gender in the Humanities and Sciences
Perception of Gender in folklore, myths, legends, taboos, symbolism and rituals
LGBT studies, sexual identities
Disability studies
Gender in Science Fiction and Fantasy
Visual Narratives: cinema, television, commercials, comic books, etc.
