First GSFL Regulars’ Table Tickets
Apr 15 all-day

Dear GSFL Members,

In an effort to strengthen the bond between all members, I am starting a GSFL Regulars’ Table. Once
a month, we can all meet virtually in a relaxed atmosphere to get to know each other and chat a bit.
To be fair to all our members across the world, I will try to serve all relevant time zones and alternate
in the scheduling. Also, the contents or activities for each Regular’s Table will vary. The details for
each meeting will be announced via our different member channels.

The first GSFL Regulars’ Table will take place on Thursday, 15 April 2021 at 19:00 CEST (Central
European Time). You are all invited. Our first meeting will involve a “speed friending” exercise to give
us a chance to get to know one another better by talking about relaxed topics of interest in a
changing set of small groups. With every new group, a new discussion question will be introduced.

To take part in our Regular’s Table, please write a short message to:

virtualconfcoordinator.gsfl@gmail.com. In your message, please be sure to include your time zone.
All registrants will be sent the all necessary log in information before our first meeting. All GSFL
members are eligible to take part.

Do you have great ideas for activities for the Regular’s Table? Do you have technical or organisational
questions about the Regulars’ Table you would like to ask? Would you like to have a chat about
options for virtual meetings? Just send me an email to the above address.

I’d be more than happy to help you!

Hope to see you soon!

Ulrike Lohner
your GSFL Virtual Conference Coordinator

Location: London (Online), United Kingdom
Contact Person: Erez Levon

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Sociolinguistics

Call Deadline: 17-Jan-2021

IGALA is the premiere international scholarly organisation for the study of language as it relates to the construction and representation of gender and sexuality. Since its founding in 1999, IGALA has been dedicated to supporting and promoting research on language, gender and sexuality, and to communicating to the wider world about relevant gender, sexuality and language issues.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, IGALA11 will take place entirely online. The conference will feature both pre-recorded individual presentations (available on-demand to registered participants 2 weeks before the conference dates) and a series of live events from 222-24 June 2021.

The theme of IGALA11 is Language and the Geopolitics of Gender. With this theme, we aim to highlight the geopolitical dimensions of language, gender and sexuality scholarship. Our goal is to showcase research on configurations of language, gender and sexuality from a diverse range of cultural, linguistic and geographical contexts, and in particular work that engages with issues of coloniality, globalisation, migration, (trans)nationalism and/or modernity. We also aim to encourage discussions of methodological and epistemological diversity, and of the broader dynamics of knowledge creation and dissemination in our field.

Call for Papers:

We are issuing a supplemental Call for Papers for IGALA11. Papers that have already been accepted should NOT be resubmitted. This call is for new submissions only, in order to fill up openings in the conference programme as a result of having postponed the event.

Abstracts are invited for individual (20-minute) papers only. Papers should present original, unpublished research related to the study of language, gender and/or sexuality. We particularly encourage submissions related to the conference theme. We welcome diversity in theoretical and methodological approaches and in the linguistic and cultural contexts considered. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to prepare a pre-recorded video of their talk. Recordings will appear on the conference website and be available to registered participants.

Abstracts should be submitted via EasyAbs (http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/IGALA11). Abstracts should be no more than 500 words and confined to 1 page of text. References, glossed/transcribed examples, and images can appear on a second page and do not count toward the word limit. Abstracts should be submitted as PDF documents and be fully anonymised. The submission deadline is Sunday 17 January 2021 (23:59, AoE: UTC-12).

All submissions will be anonymously reviewed. Notifications of acceptance will happen in February 2021.

Note that authors may present a maximum of two presentations at IGALA11, only one of which may be sole-/first-authored. This limit applies to both regular papers and panel papers. For any questions, please contact the IGALA11 organizing team: igala11@qmul.ac.uk.
