Workshop on gender and linguistic fieldwork
THIS EVENT IS ARCHIVED
Date: 8 June 2015Time: 9:00 AM
Finishes: 8 June 2015Time: 5:00 PM
Venue: Russell Square: College Buildings Room: 4426
Type of Event: Workshop
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a platform for fieldworkers to exchange their experiences and reflections on the role gender plays in both their work and personal life while in the field.
A lot has been said about the relationship between gender and fieldwork in anthropology, but no such exchange has yet been initiated in documentary linguistics. By means of this workshop we hope to start bridging that gap, and hopefully make fieldworkers more aware of ways of conceptualising, and relating to both their gendered experience, and gender dynamics in their host communities.
This event is an all-day workshop, with a plenary talk followed by presentations by selected speakers. Each of the presenters will have 20 minutes for the talk, plus 10 minutes for questions.
